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."

Mentioned in's review of the opera L'Amant Anonyme in March 2016. 

      "Praise must be also addressed to Costume Designer Matsy Stinson, who using multicolor patterned fabrics the actors drape over their simple black outfits - like capes and gowns - adds a layer of elegance to the performance."
