Critic Reviews (7)

April 17th, 2014
For a previous production

"At intermission, I was convinced Everything You Touch was well on its way to being the best new play of the year. The second act, however, contents itself with being merely excellent."

For a previous production

"You may have seen your share of makeovers, but nothing like the one Sheila Callaghan inflicts on her heroine in “Everything You Touch,” her lushly written dark comedy...a powerful reminder of why beauty, heartless though it may be, holds us in such thrall."

For a previous production

"It’s a strong enough script, especially in dialogue and story, but the playwright’s deconstructive dramaturgy complicates the story rather than enhancing it."

"It may you take a while to get into Everything You Touch, but by the end, if you’re anything like this reviewer, Callaghan’s play will prove Everything You Wish For in exciting, contemporary theater."

For a previous production

"Callaghan’s writing is strongest in the play’s more realistic moments. But whenever the language takes a turn for the poetic—yikes. Spoken-word poetry can be incredibly powerful. But when a play switches back and forth from realistic language to these heightened moments, the latter feels cheapened, and the outcome of this experimental brand of theater is an experiment gone decidedly wrong."
