“Diana Son’s Stop Kiss plays like an absorbing public-service announcement. The tale of the furtive lesbian romance that unfolds in the months before and after the commission of a brutal hate crime, the piece sensitively chronicles the sexual awakening of two appealing young women as they tiptoe around mutual desire.”
- Peter Marks, Washington Post

“To love is to declare oneself, and Stop Kiss should speak to anyone who has had to search deep within to find the strength and conviction to join hands with another. I can't remember when a love story has moved me more.”
- Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times
