See it if You are a fan of genius. Morillo is an intellectual giant. A titan among men. Morillo is the James Joyce of playwrights.

Don't see it if You are a Scientologist. Morillo's long running war with Scientology is on full display in this masterpiece of theatre.

"The intimate space of is a fitting locale for this alternative and edgy new play...For a play with such a small cast, there is a tremendous amount of insight to be drawn from the many themes and careful plotting of Matt Morillo’s 'Allen Wilder 2.0'...This brutal look at modern relationships explores the human psyche unfettered in a fun yet poignant way."

"Ultimately this is a play about reconciling the fact that dreams don’t have to come true as long as there’s a journey that calls...I believe this is Morillo’s chance to talk about art and relationships through the lives of characters that mirror his own experience. This play could be a pilot for a sitcom about adults who are real, not pasteboard perfections from an advertising campaign...Well worth your time."
