Time Out New York
October 2nd, 2015

"'Reread Another,' one of Gertrude Stein's mysterious prose-plays, delights the senses. It also baffles and even bores; then just when you're righteously cheesed off, it throws its hands up in mock dismay...'Reread' is a modernist tiger with the soul of a pussycat. It's only 50 minutes long and director David Herskovits has cast three winning performers—Ugo Chukwu, Clare Barron and Purva Bedi—all of them goddamn adorable."

"This production’s interpretation appears as an effort to expose the limitations of words, to analyze the problems of communication, and to fight against the urge to make complete sense. If you like that sort of thing, you will love 'Reread Another;' if you don’t, this iteration will do little to change your mind. If you have no opinion on such works, you owe it to yourself to check it out and develop an informed one. But don’t worry if you don’t entirely get it: that’s just as it should be."
