Selected Reviews:

“Hardy is an exciting new talent …five out of five stars” –   Sacramento News and Review

“Showrunners take note. Hardy… takes the best elements of contemporary cultural references, social media, and pop science and turns them into something more than the sum of those parts—an out-of-this-world, all-ages celebration of nerdiness, empowerment, and love.” –DC Theater Scene

“A masterpiece of deft, taut, economical writing. Hardy introduces, defines and develops characters with laser-like precision, creating sympathetic, likable folks the audience can’t help caring about and a fast-moving and engaging story with a good dose of humor.” –Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

“Reina Hardy renews locals’ hope in the potential vibrancy of the Austin theatre scene by giving us something we don’t always get here: a rock solid script….Hardy is the high priestess of the quotable one-liner, and she manages to keep her audience in stitches while grappling with some heady philosophical ideas.”- The Austin Chronicle

“I’ve heard a lot of great things about Reina Hardy… I’m proud to report that all I’ve heard is true. Her new play is hysterical, sweet, and wonderfully original… Her text is full of heart, humor, and charm, and it touches on how universal loneliness can be. When paired with three immensely talented performers and a brilliant young director, Stars and Barmen is as spectacular as comedies get.” – Broadwayworld

“Hardy has a flair for off-key insights… funky, poetic… the romantic “Glassheart” certainly has music in its voice.” – The Washington Post

“Reina Hardy’s eerie, melancholy Glassheart sets itself apart … more than just a love story… enchanting, funny and thought-provoking.” – The Washingtonian
