for a previous production “Brochu’s knack for characterizing Mostel is somewhat more interesting than his avatar’s hand-wringing over the blacklist, which comes off as a little sanctimonious…Ultimately, though, the play works whether or not Brochu’s script searches Mostel’s life for nuance and color. Under the direction of Piper Laurie, his performance has plenty of both; the end result is frequently funny and always engaging.” Full Review


for a previous production "It’s hard to begrudge a crew of nattily dressed Christmas carolers the unavoidable saccharine they’re bound to generate while performing their duties, but it’s possible...The short, unassuming production is clearly a labor of love, but this is a family show overburdened with dense period arcana that will sail over the heads of most in the audience...Still, there’s something to be said for the utter purity of intention Moore and company bring to the show."
