Time Out New York
August 19th, 2016

"There is much to admire in this fast-paced production. Trumbull delivers a nuanced performance full of humor and charm. Moody projections of the Chicago landscape fill the backdrop as recognizable film noir archetypes push the story along...One quibble: The production’s over-shadowy lighting makes it hard to connect with the characters on stage. Even a show that embraces the noir does not need to keep everyone so literally in the dark."

Theatre is Easy
August 17th, 2016

"An absurd, heartfelt murder mystery that will draw you in and keep you guessing, even after you leave the theater…It plays off of a lot of noir tropes, and provides a few laughs along the way as characters subvert genre expectations…I walked out vaguely aware that there was something I was supposed to learn from this cautionary tale, but also baffled as to what it was…Definitely worth seeing if you're at all interested in a contemporary twist on one of the oldest kinds of stories."

August 19th, 2016

"'Off Track' circumlocutes several important issues without raising one deep, rich, enduring question about any of them. This failure on the part of a playwright is unfortunate and unfair not only to an audience but to the show’s actors that have to struggle to make sense of a play...The playwright has chosen to introduce characters he abandons on page and on stage as underdeveloped stock characters without convincing or interesting conflicts."
