"Can a minor late renaissance play be the inspiration for a successful modern musical, written in iambic pantameter, utilizing the music of an all girl 80’s pop punk band? You better believe it!...When the court of Arcadia opens the festivities with 'We Got The Beat,' joy takes the stage and never lets go...Maintaing iambic pantameter and combining it with the musical beat of The Go Go’s was a stroke of genius...The fun is infectious."

for a previous production "An extraordinarily well-realized two-hander...Dilorio has wisely treated the two characters more as archetypes of Intellect vs Body rather than specific historical personages. As a result, the play works beautifully as an exploration of human types and ideals...In the tradition of Beckett, it is also extremely offbeat and funny. Dilorio’s insightful understanding of Beckett’s famous ouvre is in evidence throughout, without ever sliding into shallow parody...A delicious success!" Full Review
for a previous production "The jokes are fast, funny, witty, and topical, but not unexpected. What raises this event way above the level of sketch comedy is the polished perfection of Hayes’s performance. He is an excellent comedian, with the comic timing of the very best...Hayes’s performance has all the silliness you could want, but also a core of steel that gives it a sharp edge...You won’t be disappointed."
