Human drama written & performed perfectly by ensem

See it if u want to see a perfect ensemble cast working together to act out the drama of people's lives in its' messiness & humor. Outstanding.

Don't see it if cancer is a trigger for u. This drama deals with some nitty gritty at a difficult time in the characters' lives (both patients and doctors).

Must see, Great writing, Great acting, Entertaining, Absorbing

See it if you absolutely LOVE an ensemble of some of the best stage actors in NYC! The characters are all so beautifully unique and perfect.

Don't see it if you have an aversion to skin cancer. Or if you only want a big splashy musical. But personally, this IS A MUST SEE!

Intelligent, Great acting, Entertaining, Clever, Absorbing

See it if you don't mind feeling a little uncomfortable at times.

Don't see it if you can't handle the idea (you don't really see anything) of skin cancer and tumor removal.

Time Out New York
October 5th, 2022

"4/5 Stars! Gardner has an uncanny ear for dialogue. She prizes people over plot as she fleshes out her characters, mining their flaws for punch lines and pathos...Director Knud Adams's humanistic touch ensures that there's rarely a false note. Even the elements that feel too on-the-nose don't undermine the evening's potency."

"It's a tribute to Gardner's keen attention to character detail that 'I'm Revolting' rarely feels schematic...Knud Adams's direction adds an intriguing layer or two to Gardner's play."

The title certainly gives one pause, and the setting, a skin cancer clinic in Manhattan, hardly seems promising. One can be entirely forgiven for slumping in one's seat at the Atlantic, steeling one's nerves for an evening likely to be grotesque, maudlin, or both. But don't count out playwright Gracie Gardner, who spins these distinctly unpromising materials into theatrical gold. I'm Revolting…offers as complete a vision of the human comedy as we have seen in months. It's a remarkable feat, instantly announcing the playwright as an exciting new voice.

"In the end, it is the overall subject matter that gives the play its heft. The individual patients are, in some ways, interchangeable. But the situation they are dealing with is something any of us might face."

"We actually learn a lot about the characters in only 90 minutes, and Gardner writes smart dialogue."

There are two truisms in life in addition to the one about death and taxes: it takes all kinds of people to make a world and something will get everyone in the end. The world premiere of Gracie Gardner’s I’m Revolting beautifully proves both points. A sensitive and perceptive play set in the waiting room of a private New York City skin cancer clinic, the plot introduces us to all walks of people and many reactions to medical reports. The ensemble cast includes several veteran actors (Laura Esterman, Glenn Fitzgerald, Peter Gerety and Patrice Johnson Chevannes) and several not so well known faces. Knud Adams’ direction is subtle and unobtrusive allowing life to pass on the Linda Gross stage of the Atlantic Theater Company.

"In 'I’m Revolting' we are only given the barest of plot threads...In the end, we are left with fragments of a well intended story that do not a story make."

October 6th, 2022

An adequate medical procedural multi-character study that just about sustains its 90-minute length. A tacked-on glum surprise twist ending compounds the pervading flatness.
