“…Honest, uncompromising, lucid, penetrating, well-written, dramatic, and…unmanipulatively moving…” —NY Magazine.


“It is sparse and concise, introspective and penetrating, powerful and uncompromising, intense and intelligent, warm and theatrical. It is THE American tragedy.” —New England Entertainment Digest.


“Something I hadn’t seen in a long time happened at 'NIGHT, MOTHER: The audience still sat applauding after the house lights came up, as if waiting for the cast to come round and join them.” —Village Voice.


“…A shattering evening…” —NY Times.
