BroadwayWorld- Recommended

"...When the play concludes as Scott's visit ends, what Zelda yells after him ("I am no longer your book") does not earn a solution to this couple's turbulent saga. Clothes for a Summer Hotel, neither a documentary, biography, nor ghost story, may be an unsatisfactory text, but Rainbow Theatre Project's production lifts it into an absorbing evening of theatre. "

"...Director Greg Stevens and the entire ensemble of Clothes for a Summer Hotel should be applauded for giving the DC Metro Region an opportunity to view this rarely produced gem."

MD Theatre Guide- Highly Recommended

"...I strongly recommend “Clothes for a Summer Hotel” based on the extraordinarily divine performance of Sara Barker as Zelda Fitzgerald. I sincerely urge the rest of the cast to study their lines and practice before their next performance because while it’s a happy coincidence that their missteps highlight the perfection of Barker’s performance, I would have loved to see the play as Williams intended it, with the right beats and punches and nuances on the sidelines as well as in the star."

"...Overall, I left the theatre impressed with the artistry and professionalism of those involved, but not very fond of the piece itself. I am still rather puzzled as to why this particular company would choose this particular play at this particular time. Stevens mentions in his note that his goal with this production is to resurrect and give new life to Clothes for a Summer Hotel; unfortunately, I think it may better serve as proof that some ghosts from our theatrical past are better left to rest."
