The New York Times
May 18th, 2015

"In just two hours, Series A of the Ensemble Studio Theater’s '35th Marathon of One-Act Plays' races from Manhattan to Brooklyn, from a port town in Kenya to the capital of Idaho, from the 1950s to right now. A collection of short works, most Ensemble regulars, this speed-trial evening emphasizes how difficult it is for theater artists to work in miniature and how satisfying when they succeed."

"Evenings such as these are necessarily uneven, but Series A has more than its share of nice surprises. If the B and C Series in the Marathon are as consistent as this, audiences will be leaving the theatre thoroughly satisfied."

"Running for 35 years, it's plain to see why the Marathon has such great legs: if variety is the spice of life, EST's given us a spice rack that seasons to taste. Quality and curation is the theme...If this first series is any indication of Marathon nights to come, it's worth the 3-Series Pass offered by EST. It's a piquant potpourri that'll keep everyone satisfied and, rare these days, wowed."
