Praise for INTERNATIONAL WOW...

"SURRENDER IS A MASTERFUL ACHIEVEMENT ON ALL FRONTS....remarkable. Unfortunately this memorable show only runs for three weeks. I can only hope that it will find other sponsors and another space so that many more people can observe war close up."
-Philippa Wehle, New York Theater Wire

"INTERNATIONAL WOW COMPANY IS MAKING THEATER UNLIKE ANYTHING ELSE ON THE NEW YORK STAGE. Give in to it: Support the Troupe."
-Adam Feldman, Time Out New York

"THE HALLWAY WAS HOT, DARK AND LOUD. Bursts of gunfire and screams echoed through the warren of rooms. A frantic Iraqi woman in a headscarf blocked the doorway. "Only women and children here," she said. I pushed past her, and saw a man with a gun squatting in the corner. I switched my rifle to semi- automatic and fired twice....SURRENDER plunges Theatergoers into the chaos, adrenaline, dread and camaraderie of modern urban warfare...SURRENDER ups the ante by putting the audience, quite literally, in the soldier's shoes."
-Wall St. Journal

"FEARLESSLY INVENTIVE. VIRTUOSIC. VERY POWERFUL. They make us want to question ourselves and make deeper sense of what binds the everyday to the cataclysmic."
- Margo Jefferson, The New York Times

"EXTRAORDINARY. PERTINENT. VERY FUNNY. ACHINGLY BEAUTIFUL. Just know this: The Expense of Spirit is among the most engrossing, involving, and challenging new stage works to arrive this season. Anyone who longs for an authentic, visceral adventure in theatre needs to see it; so does anyone who cares about the future of American drama."
- Martin Denton, nytheatre.com

"BREATHTAKING. UNCONVENTIONAL. BEAUTIFUL. The Expense of Spirit is a stunning exploration of the impact of grief on human beings and their relationships to one another. See The Expense of Spirit. See it. Otherwise it becomes difficult to imagine how sadness could be so thrilling."
- Julie Sharbutt, offoffonline.com

"ADVENTUROUS. CHILLING. STUNNING In a theatrical landscape that often suffers from blandness and predictability, [this] is that rare show where you never know what will happen next."
- NY Times, re: Death of Nations

"HELLISH AND WONDROUS VISIONS. Josh Fox is one of downtown's most audacious auteurs."
- Time Out NY, re: Hyperreal America

"IT CHALLENGES YOUR SENSES. IT HAUNTS YOUR DREAMS. Don't miss a minute of this endlessly innovative international theatre company."
- New Jersey Journal, re: Death of Nations

"FOX BLENDS THE OLD AND THE NEW, EARNEST PASSION AND WINKING IRONY...showcasing a brilliantly resourceful mastery of stagecraft with his meteoric International WOW Company."
- Time Out NY, re: The Bomb

"IN JUST A FEW YEARS, INTERNATIONAL WOW HAS DESERVEDLY GAINED A REPUTATION as one of the most innovative and prolific theater groups around. Stunning theatrical power." - Theatermania, re: The Bomb
