Critics’ Reviews

The four-person cast move among the audience, climbing onto chairs or tables or the bar to belt out Nash's often searing torch-song melodies.

Review by Thom Geier from Entertainment Weekly

Reconfigured for a commercial transfer in a larger theater, this hot-blooded property written by Julia Jordan and set to music by Juliana Nash still steams up the room with its violent tabloid tale of illicit love, lust and betrayal.

Review by Marilyn Stasio from Variety

['Murder Ballad' is] hot and sweaty, energetic and intriguing, rough and ragged.

Review by Joe Dziemianowicz from New York Daily News

'Murder Ballad' has its own brooding matinee idol in the form of Will Swenson, who ably embodies the most combustible part of a dangerous romantic triangle.
