Theatre is Easy
August 24th, 2016

"Evocative and thought-provoking, ‘Target Goldberg’ will force you to question how power operates in the world…The power of 'Target Goldberg' is in its coherent internal logic…Balancing heavy material with funny, self-aware lines, 'Target Goldberg' plays with the expectations of the audience…'Target Goldberg' is smart and convincing, and engages in an important narrative."

For a previous production

"'Goldberg' plays his 'role' with modesty and charm...If the universe(s) is engaged in a Manichean struggle between good and evil, I for one appreciate getting the facts. I am somewhat mortified, however, to learn that being hapless or uninteresting is no longer a bar to being spied upon. If this concerns you, or interests you, or if you just want to have a good time, see this show."

For a previous production

"From a technical acting perspective, Goldberg’s story has a fine amount of texture to it...As an actor, Goldberg obviously has talent, especially for psychological realism...I can’t say the same for the writing...I was left disappointed by the pointedly unpointed ending...It left me wanting too much. Even so, 'Target Goldberg' is a well-acted work with a clever premise that exceeded my expectations."
