Sarah’s film, EQUITY, premiered in Dramatic Competition at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival where it sold to SONY PICTURES CLASSICS. The film will be released in theaters July 29, 2016
NEW YORK TIMES
Bracing, witty, suspenseful. One of the most wrenching scenes involves the childless Naomi’s figuring out that her protégée, Erin (Sarah Megan Thomas), is pregnant. The look on the younger woman’s face (Ms. Thomas) — pure panic eating away at the obligatory mask of joy — haunts the rest of the movie.
Imagine you’re watching Wall Street, but Michael Douglas is a badass Anna Gunn (Breaking Bad) grooming a female Martin Sheen (Sarah Megan Thomas). What’s most remarkable about Equity is that it’s a high-stakes thriller so good that the actors’ genders matter not at all.

James Van Der Beek had a new leading lady tonight as he premiered his latest film, Backwards. The 35-year-old looked dapper on the red carpet next to co-star Sarah Megan Thomas on Tuesday night in New York.
The Awards Circuit
Sarah Megan Thomas is quite a great actress, and should do more work in mainstream cinema. I could see her being the Sarah Jessica Parker of her generation if placed into the right film projects. She’s got that spunk, wit, and intellect, plus she’s got an ease about her that is both relate-able and comforting.
THE NEW YORK TIMES
Once you hear Berowne(a)’s (Sarah Megan Thomas’) immortal cry of longing ‘Oh my little heart!’ spoken by a woman, you may wonder why Shakespeare didn’t think of that. This elegant adaptation reveals wit and precision in every line, costume, glance, gesture, and prop. The tickling emotional perplexity of the people onstage always seems about to leap out and seize the whole crowd. It’s fun to watch. Gender reversed production of “Love’s Labour’s Lost”
TIME OUT NEW YORK
“Thanks to Thomas’ and Pietropinto’s vivid performances. Suffice it to say, Summit Conference’s mistresses shouldn’t be missed.”
FILM REVIEWS – “THE LITTLE THINGS” (Film voted “BEST OF THE FESTIVAL”)
When Thomas smiles, she lights up the screen. Her quiet magic gives the film a warm glow.[/quote]
The naturalistic performances of the two leads (Thomas and Scheinman) are incredibly winning, and viewers will be rooting for these two to get together.

Eva’s (Thomas’) fidgety, nervousness reveals a personality that makes it easy to believe that she attempted suicide three times. The show’s brief run has just been extended for a week, to March 6th. Rightly so. It’s one of the more provocative and stimulating dramas to be found on or off Broadway.

[quote author=”THEATER MANIA”]”Both actors (Sarah Megan Thomas and Reese Madigan) are pitch-perfect, uncovering the ugliness and unhappiness within the couple’s lives while also displaying their desperate desire to hang on to the love they once felt and maybe even continue to feel for one another.”
