DIRECTING


"Rex Daugherty...is hope for Solas Nua to replant its imaginative flag forcefully on this city's theatre map." - Peter Marks, The Washington Post

"Little Thing Big Thing is a shining example of the sort of lo-fi, high speed theatre that Solas Nua does better than any outfit in town" - Washington City Paper

"Rex Daugherty continues his string of well oiled productions that are quickly making Solas Nua a formidable presence in the midsize DC theatre scene." 

-DCMetro Theatre Arts

"A master class in how to construct a farce." - DC Theatre Scene

"Laugh a minute - uproarious sensation of a farce that will keep you laughing the whole time." - DC Metro Arts

"Intense speed and precision" - Washington Examiner

"Daugherty keeps the action moving...in an intelligent and well crafted manner with surprises along the way...it's hard to envision a production more compelling" - DC Theatre Scene

"Thoroughly gripping in its aggressively visual storytelling." - The Washington Post

"Rex Daugherty, director, choreographer brings a profound immediacy to the characters in this absorbing production...a scorching drama filled with fiery passion and emotional sensitivity." - The Alexandria Times

"Pitch perfect...a firecracker of a show...in large part the credit goes to director Daugherty" - DC Theatre Scene

"Skillfully structured...excellent visual tricks up his sleeve. Any director wanting to take notes on how to use a small venue to the best effect should come see this show." - Broadway Baby

"A thoroughly entralling, entertaining and emotional piece of theatre." - Edinburgh Guide

"Spot-on direction...found the exact mix of comedy and tragedy that best enhances the play's effect." - DC Theatre Scene

"Daugherty finds a unique approach...creating wildly intriguing moments of action to appease the visual and aural senses." - DC Metro Arts

“One other thing to look out for would be the spot on accents. Billy Elliot is very specific with what region of England is represented so if the accents are off it's a bad thing. Assistant Director/Dialect Coach Rex Daugherty's work is excellent here and captures the sound perfectly.” - Broadway World

 “Daugherty’s work with his team is full of clever detail…a lot of beautiful touches.”
