Review by MATT RITCHEY

June 12, 2016 certified reviewer

What I liked

Everything: The acting, the directing, the WRITING..!!

What I didn't like

…that it doesn’t already have a studio deal.

My overall impression

This is Theatre. I was absolutely in awe of the writing – the characters, the use of language – it was Mamet, only smoother and with more respect for actors. The direction was fantastic – with three chairs and two tables, I was transported INTO New York apartments, boardrooms, restaurants. The acting (and this is connected to the direction) was truthful, impacting, and raw – across the board, though David Lee Garver and Ralph Guzzo’s work truly stands out. This deserves an extension, a stay in New York, and a screenplay adaptation. Hands down, best drama I’ve seen so far. GO!
