How My Grandparents Fell in Love (Ensemble Studio Theatre)

"Mr. Gitter’s “How My Grandparents Fell in Love” is a gorgeous high note to end on: a Jewish screwball romance set in Poland in 1933. Unlikely, yes, but also uproarious and beautifully cast, with tone-perfect direction by Colette Robert." -Laura Collins-Hughes, New York Times*

The Interval

The Interval’s Women to Watch features “16 female writers, directors, designers, and producers who the theatre community should be watching."


The Mountaintop (Chester Theatre Company)

“Colette Robert has done a beautiful job with a difficult set of problems in this play...It's a very good play in the hands of very talented people. Chester is closing its season with a play people should rush to see. -J. Peter Bergman, Berkshire Bright Focus

“This is a strong finale for Chester’s season, bringing a quality play and talented actors to local audiences.” -Jonathan Levine, The Pittsfield Gazette

“Director Colette Robert achieves a dreadful, tightening sense of inevitability on the stage, in a claustrophobic interpretation, designed by Travis George, of the room where King spent his final night on earth.” -Dan Dwyer, Dan Dwyer Off Script


when last we flew (Diversionary)

“A soaring production, with high-powered acting and direction.” -Pat Launer, jazz88.org

“Diversionary Theatre made the savvy decision to bring out west its very talented original director, Los Angeles-to-New York transplant Colette Robert...a production that looks every bit as good as a West Coast Premiere deserves to be.” -Steven Stanley, stagescenela.com


when last we flew (FringeNYC)

“Colette Robert directs a phenomenal cast who dive into the world of the play so deep that the audience has no choice but to follow.  Her staging is simple and elegant.” -Michael Roderick, broadwayworld.com

“The seven-person cast, under Colette Robert’s superb direction, could not be bettered...This was the last of the 14 shows I’ve reviewed in the Fringe this year.  It couldn’t have possibly ended on a higher, more thrilling note.” -Erik Haagensen, Backstage

“Colette Robert’s production and Rivers’ script are by far some of the most polished I’ve ever seen at FringeNYC.” -David Gordon, nytheatre.com
