Troy Record praises tft and New World Order

"If you are going to start a new theater company, it’s a good idea to define yourself... Troy Foundry Theatre certainly does... The production identifies the new company as one which relishes political theater and is not afraid to embrace the dark and brutal...

Clearly this is a director and a company in control of its material" (Goepfert, Troy Record & The Saratogian)
