You Got Older by Clare Barron

"Fearsomely authoritative" - The New Yorker
"Mr. Schantz...has a simmering sexual glamour" -  The New York Times
"An intense, leonine Michael Schantz makes the utmost of his scenes as Aufidius" - The New York Times
"Michael Schantz turns in a powerhouse performance as Dr. Stockman, capturing his unshakable integrity, increasing moral indignation, offensive tirades to the crowds, and ultimate obstinacy in remaining in a town that has scorned him, righteously declaring that “the strongest man in the world is the man who stands alone.”"
 - DC METRO THEATRE ARTS
"Michael Schantz brings chilling life to the horrific Lt. Jonathan James Kendrick. Michael Schantz elicits utter disgust and cold chills from the audience" - Broadway World
"Michael Schantz plays Lt. Kendrick, instrument of Jessep's disciplinary system, as a surly zealot." - Houston Chronicle
"Michael Schantz has the bearing and vocal command of an experienced classical actor and is excellent as Thomas Montgomery.  He authoritatively delivers numerous speeches as well as giving a richly realized performance." - Theatre Scene
"Saranoff, as an example, is played by Michael Schantz as a swaggering, ridiculous, pompous, preposterous creature, wrapped in fur and tight-fitting, embroidered military garb, bearing a profound mustache that stretches from ear to ear. He struts the proscenium stage like it was a catwalk, and he never simply stands still — he strikes exaggerated heroic poses. He's marvelously funny in the role, and what other choice was there in playing it?" - MINNPOST
