MICHAEL BRYSON certified reviewer June 16, 2019
An absolutely terrific show! I loved the writing, and the acting and direction really brought it all together into a complete package that represents the best of the post-Beckett theatre scene. A combination of humor and pathos and immediate political urgency unlike any I have seen.... full review

This is without a doubt of of the best productions I’ve seen in a very long time! It was both thought provoking and hilarious at all of the right moments. The writing was incredible. The acting was great. I would recommend this intelligent and hilariously written play to anyone willing to listen. ... full review

REBECA ZAVALETA certified reviewer July 02, 2019
A campy take on climate change where mollusks, birds, algae, barley and glaciers have their say on how global warming affects them. Acted out in lovely vignettes that captures each character’s hilarious and poignant observations. My family attended the last performance and afterwards each of us voiced our favorite section, which truly highlights how this issue resonates differently. The writer’s multi-pronged approach using a variety of settings and visual cues gave both a global perspective and sense of personal calamity.... full review

An interesting take on the prescient subject of climate change. Some of the effects of which seen in the show are not the first that come to our minds, but in the end help to send a call to action. The time is now. ... full review

I am so glad we came the other night. The play is so innovative and the cause so essential. I just read an article in Time magazine about the efforts of Pacific island nations to unify the world in this urgency to rid us of coal, etc. They spearheaded the effort behind 2015 Paris Agreement. And, of course, “45” has withdrawn us from it. Fiji has already lost homes and land and will need to relocate 40 affected coastal villages. Did you see that article? I loved the line in the play using “global warming” instead of the republican “climate change” which suggests this nightmare is just part of natural happenings. I appreciated the emphasis on “not here” so why worry? So glad you brought the info to me. ... full review

JANET TUNKLE certified reviewer June 27, 2019
All of planet earth whether living or inanimate is effected by the changing climate be it a mollusk and its shell, a blade of barley, or a glacier. Through vignettes that bring to life various headlines about global warming, Octopi Wall Street makes a strong statement about the perils of not taking action to reduce man made climate change.... full review
AMOS YUNON certified reviewer June 24, 2019
I found this show to be very thoughtful and entertaining. I especially enjoyed the script and the deft but forceful way the writing brought the issue of global warming down to the level of the smallest life forms whose ecosystem we are busily destroying.... full review
