The New York Times
September 13th, 2015

"'Genet Porno' is merely puerile. And aggressively dull...Perhaps Mr. Greenberg, a director and choreographer, means to emphasize the eventual tedium of erotic experience, the desensitization that pornography invites. If so, he makes that point often and explicitly. It would be hard to imagine a tribute to Genet that wilts so quickly."

"There's a lot of sex in this show, much of it taking the form of highly stylized and explicit dance...Obviously, 'Genet Porno' isn't for everyone. Those with an aversion to thinking about, discussing, or seeing sex will want to stay away. Everyone else will be pleasantly surprised by this hilarious and often heartbreaking modern riff on an old classic."

"One should warn everyone that this piece is not for children. There are explicit scenes of fellatio, masturbation, anal sex, and ejaculation...The three actors were given standing ovations. Anyone who wants to see an extraordinary unique piece of theatrical art should not miss 'Genet Porno.'"

New York Theatre Review
September 15th, 2015

"Lowbrow comedic stylings are only funny for so long. Inevitably, one yearns for the linguistic arias of Genet. But maybe the frustration is intentional...Deliberate frustration is always a risky experience to stage, especially with an endlessly entertaining master like Genet humming in the background. However, Greenberg, through Genet, is slicing open contemporary queer life to locate its maladies and potentials for transcendence."
