I Could Say More

The New York Times
"It’s a constellation that doubles as a lesson in evolving gay culture."

Gay City News
"Much has been written about the 'invisible' warrior generation of gay men who watched half their friends die from AIDS and are now well into midlife, aged out of the clubs and bars, battling loneliness and depression. This is one of the few plays I have seen that dares to broach this complex subject."

Accidentally, Like A Martry

The New York Times
"Though these men are only sometimes good to one another, they are good company for 80 minutes in the theater, especially Mr. Blasius’s warm, wounded Edmund. You find yourself rooting for him, whether or not he’s rooting for himself."
