CHRISTINE DEITNER certified reviewer June 17, 2019
Though I would happily line up for hours to watch any of the actors featured perform the roles they have here [not just Loman and Lear but also Blanche from 'Streetcar' and Martha from 'Woolf'], the play is not as successful as the acting is. ... full review

One of the best new plays I've seen in a long time. Loved this, particularly driven by the impeccable performances of Leon Russom and Bruno Oliver. This theatre should be filled every performance. Do not miss this, it has legs! I cannot praise this enough.... full review
JOHN PATRICK DALY certified reviewer June 27, 2019
An engaging and celebratory play about what it means to have lived, loved, and be loved. Two of literature's biggest figures meet face to face, and have to figure out each others' pasts and faults in order to move on to forgiveness. ... full review

The actors drew me into the lives of their characters and their performances were first rate! I could have watched them and listen to them longer.

t seems that I saved one of the best shows of HFF19 for last, as Lear/Loman delivered on so many levels.  Starting with the amazing script written by Kate Schwartz and directed by Scott Leggett, the acting was simply amazing and the show left a sizeable impact on me, especially given what had happened to me during the weekend.  Suffice it to say that this show is definitely in the top 10 and maybe even the top 5 of the over 600 shows I have reviewed at the Fringe, and I will never forget its impact.  Leon Russom (Lear) and Bruno Oliver (Loman) turned in Tony-worthy performances, and were truly supported by Heather Roberts (Linda Loman), Tim Kopacz (Biff Loman), Reuben Uy (Happy Loman), Sarah Schulte (Regan) and Lauren Dewey (Goneril).  It is... full review
