Kabuki Ugly Duckling – Muny 1st Stage
Chris Limber along with the winsome company have made Duckling a thoroughly charming theatre piece. The color and movement of the staging enthralled a large family audience.

The Very Last Green Thing – Opera Theatre of St. Louis
Green Thing should restore faith in morality theatricals by and for kids aged seven to 15. Christopher Limber directed smartly - the cast seemed faultless.

Godspell – SIUE Summer Show Biz Production
Christopher Limber who directs this production has cut the sugar with boisterous humor and undercut the sentiment with fresh lemon juice of a wry eye toward the ways of the world. John Dryden, the first great stage theoretician of the English speaking theatre said Load every rift with ore,” and that’s what Limber has done. Yet his Godspell seems artless and naïve. Which of course is how you know what superior art really is. Godspell is a rare achievement

Twelfth Night – St. Louis Shakespeare Co.
Christopher Limber Directs with gusto and Flair – patrons are treated to a delectable piece of entertainment. Twelfth Night is top notch all around technically and in its performances. It is pleasure and delight it is charm and grace and style.

The Food Chain – City Players of St. Louis
nail a tale of loneliness, rejection and humiliation -- and it's a comedy. Under the unifying direction of Christopher Limber, just about everything works in this St. Louis premiere. Viewers who can derive pleasure from the cruel humor of ridicule are likely to laugh a lot.

Girl Gone - NonProphet Theater Company –
Director Christopher Limber brings together the pieces stylishly, clearly delineating the dream and memory sequences from reality. Limber also wisely inserts an intermission into Reingold's script, giving the audience a chance to digest the complex information and take a break from the intense emotions – a powerful final show in the NonProphet Theater Company's first season of plays.
