"Nicotine Dolls’ fourth single “Should Have Danced” is an impassioned fever dream full of hope, longing, and electric energy that asserts them as one of the best up-and-coming acts in New York City..Nicotine Dolls have made a name for themselves not only off their music, but also from their self-produced music videos that they create with their own company, OutaLine Productions. Directed by Cieri, produced by Nyssa Grant, and starring Ashley Ortiz and Maddie EasleyLine, the “Should Have Danced” music video injects additional light and levity into the “Should Have Danced” storyline – highlighting the chase in real time while singling in on that one simple, potentially life-altering action." - ATWOOD MAGAZINE, MARCH 2020

Following suit of previous shows like BLACKOUT and In Lak' Ech, the show sets out to invoke a hard discussion by confronting issues through the vein of genuine experience. From blood quantum, stereotypes, and identity, to rituals, songs, and poems, INDIGENOUS implores the audience to absorb some of the most authentic, beautiful, uncomfortable, ugly truths about who and what "America" really is." - Broadway World, 2020
