The Georgetown Voice and DC Metro Theater Arts both raved about War with the Newts performed by Georgetown University students. Journalist Elizabeth Baker of the The Georgetown Voice wrote that the adaptation "blends several mediums to convey a twisting, thought-provoking narrative that will make audiences both laugh at and ponder the performance’s central themes. Though they may be small and cute, these newts may help today’s audience see his fellow man — or newt — in a different light." John Stoltenberg reviewed the show for DC Metro Theater Arts giving it five stars, saying it's a "sensational show' with "fantastical imagination on display and a timely parable at play!"
