Critic Reviews (2)

The New York Times
November 25th, 2012
For a previous production

"Not all of the performers are physically at ease, and the dance routines that accompany several sung scenes, feel awkwardly inserted. Still, this cast is adroit, and good company for two hours. But if 'Love in the Time of Cholera' doesn’t lag, it also doesn’t especially lodge in the mind. The various loves (thwarted, married, sexual, etc.) are too narrowly depicted, and too tangentially connected to sociopolitical themes, to attain the sweeping expansiveness of Mr. Márquez’s writing."

New York Latin Culture
October 12th, 2012
For a previous production

"This is pure theatre for actors, theatre lovers and people who want to see this story told in a different way. Perhaps the unique character of the play has something to do with Repertorio Español itself, one of the few remaining repertory theatre companies in the United States...If you love theatre, in any language, go see 'El Amor en los tiempos del cólera'."
