[The] Ophelia Landscape

“I appreciated the beauty, expressiveness, and commitment of the eight actresses playing Ophelia”

Surviving the Nian

“Megumi Haggerty, the Emerson junior who plays 24-year-old Kaylin Wu, returning to the bosom of her Hong Kong family after five years in the States, shows tremendous promise. She has a lovely voice. . .If her stage presence in this production is a bit earnest and drab, that’s a fault written into the role.”
Boston Globe

“At the center of the show are actresses Megumi Haggerty (Kaylin) and Abria Smith (Asha) who create a thoroughly realistic relationship, full of frustration, compromise and sweetness.”
Arlington Advocate

“Megumi Haggerty plays Kaylin with a steely-eyed determination that disintegrates in the face of family and culture.”
Boston Phoenix

“Critics adore this comedy that illustrates the complex, dramatic, and funny elements that crop up in every family. Winner of the 2007 Jonathan Larson Award for Musical Theatre!”
