Broadway World - Recommended

"...Julia Marie Myatt has come up with a brand new look at how abuse affects one's essence. It eats away at your spirit, and it is not easy to buck that and move forward and try to be happy and satisfied. Directed by Marya Mazo, each scene melds together with deft switches in mood and a reveal in explanation of what is subliminally happening. Interspersed with a great variety of songs that each character uses to expose their inner feelings, the familiar songs they sing are subtle hints to the hidden reality. I enjoyed the choice of songs chosen for the different characters to sing to accompany their personal journeys."

Stage Scene LA - Highly Recommended

"...Abuse survivors living in a group home would seem unlikely to inspire a comedy as sweet and touching and funny as Julie Marie Myatt’s The Rescued, but the Road Theatre Company’s latest World Premiere proves an utterly charming if still-a-bit-in-need-of-a polish gem."

"..."Do we find the same compassion for them (humans) that we might find for rescue animals?" That is the second question we are asked. Myatt and director Marya Mazor have painted each character with an animal-like brush giving the story added depth."

"...Each of these cast-offs has a touching story to tell about how each arrived to a rescue household. And each performance is extraordinary in its faithful rendition of its own species. Accompanied by appropriate songs offered in karaoke style by the performers, they comprise the body of this touching play."

Stage Raw - Highly Recommended

"...Now playing at The Road on Magnolia, Julie Marie Myatt’s The Rescued is a touching tale about the journey to peace. Under the direction of Marya Mazor, a small yet spectacular cast takes on the personas of rescue animals and tells their startlingly relatable stories."
