Zoë joins the cast of Rori Nogee's new play Aftershocks, playing March 28-April 14 at Theater For The New City.

"...crafted with an expansiveness that does not surrender character to caricature..."

- Jeffrey Borak, The Berkshire Eagle

"Everyone else in the cast is superb, with Ms. Laiz, whose part is small but flashy, making the biggest impression. She has the kind of star quality that you notice the moment she walks on stage."

- Terry Teachout, Wall Street Journal

"Laiz controls one of the funniest scenes in the play. Her Amanda is almost bigger-than-life and thoroughly charming."

- Macey Levin, Berkshire On Stage

"... Zoë Laiz is a hoot, but far from a stereotype."

- Nancy Grossman, Broadway World

"... impeccable comedic timing-- mature acting judgement..."

- Dan Dwyer, Off Script
