Critics’ Reviews

Linda Lavin raises an eyebrow and communicates more than a lesser actor might squeeze from a long monologue. She knows this woman down to her fingertips, investing Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies’ words with a piercing truth. Sarah Paulson gives an effective performance. Her teary earnestness in the climactic scene rings true.

Review by Charles Isherwood from The New York Times

Lovingly directed by Lynne Meadow, Donald Margulies delivers an engrossing play with characters that are interesting, intelligent women.

Review by Linda Winer from Newsday

An exemplary revival of an engrossing play in the expert hands of Linda Lavin and Sarah Paulson. Lavin is a joy to watch. She gives one of those complete, nuanced performances with astonishing fidelity. Paulson is a fine actress giving an adept, profound portrait.

Review by Michael Kuchwara from Associated Press

Funny, powerful and satisfying with sensitive direction by Lynne Meadow. Linda Lavin is brilliant and commanding as Ruth Steiner, while Sarah Paulson is very good as Lisa Morrison.

Review by Robert Feldberg from The Bergen-Record

Linda Lavin is brilliant. She’s a marvel to watch in this splendid Manhattan Theatre Club production. Lynne Meadow skillfully guides the cast through Margulies’ absorbing exploration of power, betrayal and morality.
