December 7th, 2015

"An intriguing play about theatrical story-making an invigorating extra layer of real-life metaness...The spine of 'The Reenactors' is the unfolding of the truth about the suicide story, but the theme of 'The Reenactors' is appropriation — whether the best stories are invented or stolen, who has the right to borrow someone else’s story, and more...Only occasionally do the proceedings become didactic, and they never stay that way for long."

December 7th, 2015

"A thoughtful and engrossing examination of the blurred boundaries between art and life...The play asks larger questions about actors and whether they’re evil narcissists, as the Director seems to believe, or artists on par with a playwright or director. The continual emphasis on this theme is the piece's weakest point...It’s the actors' performances themselves as they navigate this ever-shifting play that proves their own artistic worth."
