    What the popular press said...

    "Has little to recommend it."
    Charles Isherwood for New York Times

    "The story of an editor and, brother, this unamusing absurdist comedy could have used one."
    Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

    "A misguided, tiresome wreck."
    Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

    "This is a huge disappointment."
    David Sheward for Back Stage

    "A woefully weak play, and there's little that Pierce or director Leigh Silverman can do to help."
    Robert Feldberg for The Record

    "Manhattan Theatre Club stages six new shows every season, so it stands to reason that every so often they unleash a dud. Such is the wretched case with 'Close Up Space.'"
    Michael Sommers for Newsroom Jersey

    "Becomes awfully wearing for a one-act running a mere 80 minutes."
    David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter

    "A conventional generational play about a rebellious teenager."
    Marilyn Stasio for Variety
