“Five Stars out of Five. Critic’s Pick. Directed with a persuasive combination of showmanship and sensitivity, this production magnifies the innate theatricality of the play without compromising the firm emotional truth at its center. The inhuman doctors, the caring, of-the-people nurse with a human touch, they are all given credible life by the cast of this fine production. ”
Ben Brantley, New York Times

 

“Strong, understated work from the supporting cast. In every detail, the production is crisp and precise yet emotionally penetrating. An uncommonly stirring piece of theater. ”
David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter 

“Five Stars. Get thee to this theatre. This production is seamless. Nixon is surrounded by an extraordinary supporting cast, who guide her through the maze of this passage and bring the every day life into brilliant relief. ”
Tulis McCall, New York Theatre Guide

“Taut and engaging. Director Lynne Meadow has assembled a sturdy support cast and guides her production skillfully. ”
Joe Dziemianowicz NY Daily News 

 

“Vivian (a perfect Cynthia Nixon) shares her experiences as she is handed off for various treatments or remembers interactions with people from her past (Pun Bandhu, Jessica Dickey, Chike Johnson and Zachary Spicer fill in for the various characters). Meadows’ attention to small details enhances the plot and draws out excellent performances across the boards. Definitely one of the highlights of the season. ”
