"The production itself is excellent. Emerson commands the play’s short running time without really physically moving at all...But Eno (directing his own work for the first time) is the star of 'Wakey Wakey,; and he’s at his most achingly, triumphantly humanist here...Eno has, in this wonderful, wonderful play, actually struck on something resembling a satisfying answer to death, buried somewhere in the knowledge that we live a million rebirths in even the smallest of gifts we leave behind."

"The premise of Lord Buckley’s act is a kind of grotesque masterclass in cultural appropriation...Broder is clearly a Buckley superfan who believes that what these dark times need is His Royal Hipness’ message of love and un-squareness. I can see where he’s coming from...But that does not excuse the fact that a largely homogeneous audience is applauding an all-white cast in what is essentially an act of minstrelsy...A tone-deaf and incredibly uncomfortable 90 minutes."
