"TUTA has produced a diverse repertory of Eastern and Western European plays in its twelve year existence, attracting a small but passionately devoted audience and garnering a critical reputation for productions that combine the highest caliber artistic achievement with cogent social and cultural critique. - Cheryl Black in Slavic and East European Performance 27, no. 1 (Winter 2007)
"Unlike anything else in Chicago, and in this town, that means a lot." - Chicago Tribune
". . . With his own company, The Utopian Theatre Asylum, Djukic has brought to Chicago audiences a rarified and often exquisite series of visions by way of a variety of literature." -Chicago Tribune
"Most tantalizing of all (new plays of 2006), were the two Serbian plays given their American premieres by TUTA, Ugljesa Sajtinac's Huddersfield and Milena Markovic's Tracks, both of which brutally examined the wrecked lives of twentysomethings in the wake of the Balkan wars. . . In two dangerous, fearlessly acted productions, TUTA proved that serious plays and young people don't have to be oil and water." -TimeOut
