The New York Times
April 22nd, 2015

"Ms. Christie’s whodunit doesn’t aim very high, especially where the title character is concerned. Emerging from the fog shortly after the murder, he is a conveniently fresh audience for old household secrets. Victoria Rauch-Lichterman’s production, at the Clurman Theater at Theater Row, is a patchy affair, unable to sustain suspense or tone."

"Theater-goers would do well to curl up in their seats, relax and enjoy... This is a thoroughly satisfying play... The actors don’t always project so the whole house hears them."

"A detailed plan is contrived in an attempt to take the onus off Laura, who Michael admires and aspires to help. We’re not quite sure why he’s so quick to defend her, unless his seeming lust ultimately gets the better of him, but the plot jumps off from there. The long and detailed set-up at times grows wearisome in Act I, but in Act II, you are riveted to your seat attempting to figure out the 'who done it...What an inspired production of a classic Christie caper."
