"The evocative true stories assembled are full of fear, courage and resilience.  But they are also rich in the flavorful humor, inextinguishable identity and civic love that characterize the inhabitants of America’s most battered city.” - The New York Times

"[Katrina] is both extremely disturbing and incredibly touching, as playwright Rob Florence preserves oral tradition to illuminate six darkly beautiful, true stories […] Florence’s script is almost perfect […] [Katrina] is vital to the modern theater scene. The play incorporates oral tradition and history that audience members will recall in startling detail.” - Chicago Theater Beat

"Playwright Rob Florence’s script is funny, poignant, uplifting, and clever. In 80 minutes, he captures the essence of why people from New Orleans want to remain, even when the potential for disaster is always palpably real.” - Arts in L.A.
