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."

"The two leads are still stumbling on a line here and there; the ‘niece’ needs a little more to do to replace her put-upon sighing; and the script, while reaching for significant aha moments, is stuck in a single message...If you are a fan of theater on the margins (which is not to say edgy theater)—this is a good candidate."

"The fast-paced dialogue is handled aptly by three, age-appropriate actors...While the overall direction of 'Allen Wilder 2.0' by Matt Morillo is exceptional, the challenge is in his script, which brings little that is new to the conversation of self-worth, family dynamics, aging, abandonment, parental divorce, sex, fear of intimacy, and the longing for approval."

"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."
