Smart Blonde

City Theatre, Pittsburgh

"Peter Flynn's direction is bursting with energy and movement."

-Pittsburgh City Paper


"You will want to see and hear Ms. Burns. She captures the nuances and playfulness of the Judy Holliday from her too-short stage and film career. She also projects the sad truth and impossible situation of a world that refused to accept a woman as the smartest person in the room."

-Pittsburgh Post-Gazette


"Jonathan Brody and Adam Heller, a protean duo, play all the people in Holliday's life, and Andréa Burns brings an enormous amount of charm, humor and intelligence to the title role."

-Pittsburgh City Paper



Ford's Theatre, Washington, DC

"Ford’s decision to stage Ragtime this year felt eerily timely given the political climate. Peter Flynn’s production had a high-stakes intensity to it, and that energy seemed to trickle down to every member of the show’s robust cast."

"The production of Ragtime showed us that no, theatre, even musical theatre could be a true weapon of resistance and an opportunity to carry a banner in the battle for the true character of American society, one enriched by the many people who came to our shows and reshaped it for the better...the production did it all not only with intelligence but passion and a boatload of supreme local talent. In fact, the entire cast seemed to have been charged with the kind of adrenalin that comes from a personal commitment to putting one’s voice and soul in the service of a larger idea."

- DC Theatre Scene


        "Ragtime sings with purpose at Ford's Theatre...the new production stirringly delivers on the kaleidoscopic show's cries for justice."

        "Peter Flynn's production utilizes the full volume of the large Ford's stage to capture the immensity of the show and its themes"

        - Washington Post

        (To read the full Washington Post Review click here)


       "Ragtime is under the very capable hands of Director Peter Flynn"

        - BroadwayWorld

        (To read the full Washington Post Review click here)


        "Glorious! Dazzling! Verve! Bursting at the seams with voices and stories of America's humanity and originating dreams."

         "Under Peter Flynn's lucid direction Ragtime is full of heart and optimism, sorrow and anger, with humor dished out as well, that is stunningly sung and          deeply conveyed by a remarkable cast."

         "Director Peter Flynn's vision for Ragtime is a joy of emphasized humanity delivered by golden voices who lived and breathed their songs and each and every lyric."

         - DC Metro Theater Arts

        (To read the full DC Metro Theater Arts article click here)


        "Director Peter Flynn has made the complicated and layered story crystal clear and has helped the characters to be differentiated."

        "Every scene is so fleshed out and truthful."

Ford's Theatre, Washington D.C.

"Directed with obvious affection by Peter Flynn, the production is calculated to stir the soul of every lover of the American story, without regard to which lever you pull on Election Day."

-Washington Post

"Flynn reveals a talent for eliciting nimble portrayals. You can see how “1776” might tilt toward over-animated broadness. But here, Bloch’s Franklin, for instance, never slides into cuteness, nor does Ashmanskas’s Adams become a Broadway caricature of prickliness. These disciplined treatments reach a natural emotional climax at the evening’s end, when all these men of clashing styles and interests convene movingly for the defiant act that’s stored in the minds of American sixth-graders of all ages."

-Washington Post


"Peter Flynn is to be commended for bringing historical drama to such detailed life" 

-DC Theatre Scene

POPE! An Epic Musical

Papal Productions, New York City

“Hallelujah! One of the funniest musicals at this year's NYMF has taken the stage at PTC's Performance Space.”

“In a manic, ridiculously campy production written by Justin Moran and Christopher Pappas and directed by Peter Flynn, Pope! packs a litany of laughs and a surprising number of fun, lightly irreverent tunes into 90 minutes.”

-Theatre Mania


“Peter Flynn, brings a joyous energy to this piece, fancifully directs this show with aplomb.”

-Times Square Chronicles


“A fun-loving sendup directed by Peter Flynn, it has a catchy pop-and-choral score by Christopher Pappas and book and lyrics by Justin Moran.”

-New York Times


"Under Peter Flynn’s proficient direction, the ensemble cast shines throughout, most portraying several characters. Justin Moran’s characters could easily become cartoonish but they do not. They are authentic characters with real conflicts that through humor and charm can be identified by audience members. Hopefully, "Pope: An Epic Musical" will be seen again in the near future on another stage."
