Reviews

for The Unavoidable Disappearance of Tom Durnin

It’s hard to focus on anyone else whenever David Morse is on stage. In two-character scenes, he invades the other person’s space and stares them down, wears them down, tears them down until he gets his way with them.

Review by Marilyn Stasio from Variety

Levenson's script...puts a magnifying glass up to the experience of an American family... As Tom and James' relationship comes to a head, the free-form play finally comes into focus and proves worth the wait.

Review by Hayley Levitt from Theatermania

Guided by director Scott Ellis, David Morse brings a simmering intensity as Tom, who feels his family members owe him their love...[Christopher Denham]'s restrained but stirring performance gives the thin “Unavoidable” some undeniable heft.

Review by Joe Dziemianowicz from New York Daily News
