Kaminski achieves such moments of transcendence that she is literally transformed; she channels Corrie's emotions in such a way that she breaks down all artifice, reaching directly into the soul of the material. — Seattle Weekly

Polemical considerations aside, "My Name Is Rachel Corrie" is indisputably an extraordinary piece of dramatic art. — Seattle P-I

“To some degree we are all kids curious about other kids. Egyptian kids shouting at strange women wandering into the path of tanks. Palestinian kids shot from the tanks when they peek out from behind walls to see what’s going on. International kids standing in front of tanks with banners. Israeli kids in the tanks anonymously — occasionally shouting and also occasionally waving — many forced to be here, many just aggressive — shooting into the houses as we wander away.” — Rachel Corrie
