“the fierce, wiry Raja Kelly” – Claudia La Rocco, The New York Times
“Though Raja Feather Kelly ‘s three‑part Warhol‑wig‑sporting spectacle Fanmail in TBA:11 Ten Tiny Dances left some wondering if this act was…ahem…all there, Kelly and his dance partner later proved that they could sweat the technique, with a lithe and balletic “warmup” routine during a break in Mike Daisey’s 24 hour monologue. Turns out, they have turnout. Who knew?.” – Anne Adams, Culturephile
