THE HUNDRED 

DRESSES

"Tamiko Robinson Steele makes a welcome return to NCT as Maddie, the story's narrator, who takes us back to her childhood- and one of themes important lessons she would ever learn. Robinson Steele is outstanding throughout, easily switching gears between the confident, grown-up Maddie and her younger, less assured counterpart."

"as Ruth Younger, she transcends anything she's done before, transforming herself into a believable woman of the late 1950s, caught up in a changing world that she's ill-equipped to handle, but manages to do so with equal parts grace and grit."
