    "Director Charlotte Moore's top-flight ensemble makes this Irish Rep revival very satisfying."
    Joe Dziemianowicz
    New York Daily News

    "Admirable if uneven revival." & "The potential to inspire laughter and maybe even a tear, but in Moore's hurried staging only the former is consistently achieved."
    Andy Propst
    Back Stage

    "With his customary mingling of humor, tragedy and lyrical, insightful dialogue, Brian Friel examined the decline of an upper-class Irish Catholic family." & "Many of them are unhappy, for various reasons that gradually are revealed under the able direction of Charlotte Moore."

    Associated Press

    "Brian Friel's achingly beautiful 1979 play." & "In the Irish Rep's meticulous revival, helmer (and company a.d.) Charlotte Moore assembles a dream cast."
