On Beckett
Talkin' Broadway

for a previous production "A fascinating lecture on Beckett...It was a pleasure to both listen to and watch this Tony-winning actor and veteran clown performer...This artist is somewhere between Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton with a little of Steve Martin thrown in for good measure...The consummate artist...does Pozzo's disturbing soliloquy from 'Waiting for Godot' with a rope around his neck. It's a moment to remember...I have a new appreciation of Samuel Beckett's words thanks to this skillful actor." Full Review

Talkin' Broadway

for a previous production "A brilliant new play based on conversations between Samuel Beckett and André the Giant...Dilorio's dialogue sparkles with Beckett-style remarks...The imaginary meetings involve conversations that are intelligent, witty, and bright...Brendan Averett and Dave Sikula are brilliant as André and Samuel Beckett...It is a terrific tour de force of underplayed acting...Leah S. Abrams beautifully and smoothly directs this fast-paced 90-minute drama." Full Review

Talkin' Broadway

for a previous production "I suppose it was time for someone to play God again...I found pleasure and a little food for thought in his reprimands, perceptions, and gags. I'm not sure how it would play in the Bible Belt. Sean Hayes portrays God as a campy character; in fact, Hayes out-camps the character...The script is up-to-date for current news, and God gets a few jabs in at Donald Trump and Ted Cruz."

Midtown E
Talkin' Broadway

for a previous production "An excellent 90-minute drama...Josh Costello has assembled five brilliant Bay Area actors to keep the audience on their toes, and they succeed in making this a taut production." Full Review
