Matsy’s costume design for the world premiere of the Macbeth adaptation, The Sisters, was mentioned in New York Phoenix News’ review of the play in June 2019.

Our story begins in familiarity, three witches on a heath, there to meet with Macbeth. The presentation, even as early as this, is fresh and distinctive. The titular weird sisters are not haggard warty crones in pointed black hats. They are dressed in earthen robes suggesting authentic paganism, rather than the Judeo-Christian demonization of empowered womanhood that we are used to. ... When a show like The Sisters comes along, Shakespeare feels right again.

The design of the Monster in the short film Slapface was mentioned in a review on in January 2019.

Comprised of an extremely somber aesthetic, emphasized not only by the pitch-black element, but also by the gorgeous muted color palette...The creature presented here is also understated and features a nice, subtle style that really works within the more “realistic” tone of the piece.

Costumes by Matsy Stinson add to the fantasy, especially the get-ups for that mermaid chorus — love the hat covered in toothbrushes!

Matsy's giant dress/tent installation was mentioned by Theatre is Easy and The Village Voice in reviews of A Ribbon About A Bomb in September 2017. 

A Ribbon About A Bomb is true to its name, a beautiful design wrapped around an explosive core...Leonora Carrington’s dress, by Matsy Stinson, fills the entire room (it’s made from 50 feet of fabric) and is another of many striking visuals.
O’Leary’s barking-mad Carrington invites us to a confab under her skirts, literally — her comically huge dress lifts like a circus tent.

Matsy's styling and design of the play Hungry were reviewed in Medium

We treat ourselves to the mysterious and the mystical, and our journey into Amy’s story is fabulously highlighted...coming from someone who currently works in fashion, we get to OBSESS over Matsy Stinson’s on point, in-the-know, and impeccable outfit choices for Amy, Katherine, and Bianca especially. So much joy comes from these little details...Bianca has cascading curves of beach-ready, blonde hair. Amy hides her head underneath a sparkly snapback, her awkwardly chopped hair tied in pigtails. Bianca, returning from a summer in LA where she lost her virginity and most of her naiveté, is trying to get her unpopular, try-hard friend to put in even more effort into losing weight, making the dance team, and getting some action.

Matsy's designs were complimented in reviews of Rossini's Otello on and by The Observer in March 2017. 

The opera was updated by director John de Los Santos to 1950s show off some dapper vintage suits, worn by the cast and chorus. Indeed, without the music, this snazzy Otello would have worked well as a Bushwick fashion show.
...a sneering chorus in chic 1950s cocktail party garb.

Write up of The Enchanted Realm of René Magritte in Vice's The Creator's Project in August 2016. 

 "Strewn with Magritte's most recognizable motifs, including apples and bowler hats, The Enchanted Realm of Rene Magritte hints at the pathos behind paintings of blindfolded lovers and trains steaming out of fireplaces...these symbols show up on the walls, in costumes, and in props."
