"A morality play meets zany variety show; there can be no funnier work about one of our most squirmy topics—how whites and POC speak to each other about race—currently on the NY stage...The productive tension between dialectic and hilarity leaves you high—in the way of a workout rather than a drink, you've made progress...Evenly performed in the spirit of 'devised investigative ensemble theater'...each actor lives up to the challenge of this most vulnerable genre."

"'Antigone' has been treated to an Anne Carson translation so alive that its run might be extended for another 2,500 years...While not without stumbles, van Hove paced the production so well it felt more like a gripping dirge than the variety of Greek revival that has challenged the genre's box office -- histrionics and boredom taking turns. The actors spoke softly and slowly, vessels of the material." Full Review
"Hook & Eye company wizz-writer Gavin Broady and director Chad Lindsey met the Herculean feat of simulating consciousness and the speed of thought without befuddling the plot or leaving the audience as adrift as when you try to tell your bedfellow about a dream. All this, no less, while staging a proper play...The script of 'God is a Verb' has wisdom to spare but Hook & Eye was wise not to preach, handling their concerns with wry restraint and a wink."
