- Portland Mercury (November 2017): "The play is a fictive composite drawn from real-life accounts, depicted with deep nuance, subtle humor, and zero judgment by a skilled ensemble of actors that contains no weak links. Throughout, there is a permeating sense of existential anxiety, of dual longings for community and meaning within secular culture. The material is relatable and vast, but it’s made accessible through light audience interaction, as a sense of trust builds between the viewers and the actors."
- Willamette Week (November 2017): "... a mind-expanding experience in its own right. The play flows dreamily from one moment to the next, powered by eerie, ambient music...there is something beautiful about the play's generous and inclusive spirit. "
- Oregon Arts Watch (November 2017): “Hand2Mouth’s aesthetic, which straddles theater and performance, is perfectly balanced by director Jonathan Walters for Psychic Utopia. There’s a lot of direct interaction with the audience at first, but as the show progresses, characters appear...The actors bring a restrained tenderness to their performances, not overly sentimental, but aware of these characters’ fragile natures... Psychic Utopia is not about a specific person, or a specific commune, but rather the human search for utopia. Not just a physical place, but a mental state we’re all seeking.”
- Broadway World (November 2017): "I loved the play, I loved the performance, and I loved the warm, connected-to-everyone feeling I've had ever since. This is the kind of immersive, visceral experience I go to the theatre for, and Hand2Mouth is uniquely talented at providing it."
- Dennis Sparks Blog (November 2017): "The cast, composer and director have created a very authentic atmosphere for this event and its impressive how it’s conducted. I recommend this “Happening.”
