IRNE Award: Best Choreography at a Small Theater, 2006

"... the ensemble work is crackerjack... led by choreographer Ilyse Robbins. Usually there isn't enough room in chamber productions at such theaters as the Lyric for choreographers to show their stuff, but Robbins (no relation to Jerome) makes the room work here. Her homages to ''West Side Story” and ''Fiddler on the Roof” are spot on." - Ed Siegel, The Boston Globe

"... this company, including Robbins, is
exceptionally adept at singing and dancing, making the show's hilarious
references to famous production numbers in other musicals (“A Chorus
Line,'' “Les Miserables,'' “West Side Story,'' “Fiddler on the Roof,'' “Chicago,'' to name a few) spot on." - Terry Byrne, The Boston Herald

"Veloudos, Robbins, scene designer Janie E. Howland – who has turned the stage and surrounding space into a wrecked urban slum – and the rest of the Lyric Stage Company artists and performers have taken ‘‘Urinetown: The Musical'' down a peg in size and up a giant step in concept to restore its value as an offbeat, original piece of theatrical merriment." - Iris Fanger, The Patriot Ledger
