• [Apartment 3A] In the steady hands of the director, Valentina Fratti, the play moves with a nice pace, hitting its comic moments without indulging in them.
    — Jason Zinoman, NY TIMES
  • [Apartment 3A] Valentina Fratti, offers one of the funniest lovemaking scenes ever witnessed onstage. Her deft handling of actors in and out of their clothes is one for the books. This offering has charm and grace.
    — Liz Smith, NY POST
  • [Apartment 3A] Director Valentina Fratti, mines the comedy’s tonal shifts from bittersweet to hilarious and back again while taking the play to its romantic conclusion. [She] elicits skillfully understated performances.
    — Alexis Greene, HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
  • [Apartment 3A] Director Valentina Fratti shows a knack for staging farce, maintaining a rapid-fire pace and crafting a quirky physical vocabulary for the various encounters between Annie and her two love interests.
    — Mark Blankenship, VARIETY
  • The superb acting [in Innocent Thoughts] leaves but one conclusion: Kudos for the playwright William Missouri Downs, as well as the director Valentina Fratti. In point everyone involved with this show should be applauded.
    — S Ruth Schwam, THE NY BEACON
  • Many of the ‘innocent thoughts’ that Blacks and Jews have about each other are boldly presented in this dramatic and passionate production. Valentina Fratti's direction delivers an explosive, funny and thought provoking production. The play doesn’t favor whites or Blacks, but the truth. Simply put, it makes for stirring theatre.
    — Linda Armstrong, AMSTERDAM NEWS
  • [The Book of Wren] …Ross’s sweet Godwin and Sallows’ sadly sour Madlin mix well and their scenes together, under Valentina Fratti’s economical direction have a rhythm and gentle power.
    — Robert Simonson, TIMEOUT
  • The production of The Book of Wren is a perfect merging of theatrical elements, worthy of mention in stagecraft book.
    — Ricky Spears, IN THEATRE
  • One hopes in wandering through the off Broadway world for the sudden discovery of a small gem. Occasionally it happens. And, not surprisingly, it has just happened at The Miranda Theatre, a company known to provide unexpected gifts.
