for a previous production "The Galway company has tackled the equivalent of a theatrical Mount Everest, and they have done it with a kind of reverence paid to a master of twentieth-century’s drama...The production has the pedigree that makes it a show that all serious theatre-goers should see...The play can be very funny, and Monaghan and Rea work beautifully on stage together...Beckett’s poetry sings, and playing his music demands following the author-as-composer’s score. Druid has done just that." Full Review
for a previous production "Cirque du Soleil has brought what may be its most rare and delightful show to date…It’s hard to choose a favorite in all of these acts, but my heart leapt up truly as a team of men, some dressed with fish tails, bounded up and down on a special acro net – and so high I am surprised they didn’t need oxygen. I know I did…If you think you know Cirque du Soleil, you simply can’t miss the joy and liberation of imagination 'Kurios' offers...And it sure looks like a lot of fun. " Full Review
for a previous production "In fact it was sixty-five minutes into the show before the first big tap dance number got featured. Secondly, if you came for a plot that marshals you through Maurice’s stage career of more than six decades, well that wasn’t there either. A skeleton of a plot was there...Director Jeff Calhoun has got some powerhouse performances on the stage, even if we might wish for more tapping in the first half and specifically more tapping from Hines. " Full Review
for a previous production "Through our Fool, we discover a waking dream of Mexico, a world as magical as any in 'Alice in Wonderland'...In between scenes that build a world reality are always topnotch human circus acts...At times, Director Tracie Valdez hasn’t found enough story-line connection for the ensemble performers as they parade on and off in various costumes. Passing flirtations become somewhat stale...If you want to run away to the circus, get thee to Cirque du Soleil." Full Review
for a previous production "The two actresses are remarkable in their transparency and truthfulness. Director Bezace has managed to brilliantly focus the intersection of reality and theatricality...This is a work that demands attentiveness, but, if you accept its invitation, offers an evocative evening of theatre, full of silence and emotional beauty."
