Critics’ Reviews

Jonathan Marc Sherman’s 'Clive,' directed by and starring Ethan Hawke, has Derek McLane’s perfect sleazy setting, Jeff Croiter’s evocative lighting, and Gaines' dark music to tell a somber tale of decadence and self-destruction.

Review by David Sheward from Backstage

Even delivering annotative lines like 'They exit,' [Vincent] D’Onofrio exudes a gleeful, dangerous heat.

Review by Ben Brantley from The New York Times

[Ethan] Hawke succeeds at conveying his character’s combination of childlike selfishness combined with adult cruelty, as Clive’s boozing and drugging and lust and treachery send him into a downward spiral of deterioration.
