    ""Dust".... might just as well describe the minute nature of this forgettable thriller." & "By the time the play reaches its melodramatic conclusion, the results seem less an epochal power struggle than a silly schoolyard tussle."
    Frank Scheck

    "Masur and Foster are excellent, but neither can fill in the blanks in their characters' histories... But under Scott Zigler's fast-paced direction, and with the aid of the always-dependable Rick Sordelet's fight choreography, they snarl and glower and have at one another rivetingly.... an uncomplicated pleasure. "

    Excellent acting and writing laced with mordant humor propel the story of a conflict between two ego-driven men that escalates beyond reason, although the thrills are at times uneven."

    "Billy Goda's "Dust" squanders its A-list cast and crew on an astonishingly lazy narrative that wouldn't fill out a "Law and Order" episode without padding. The wannabe screenplay, billed as "a thriller," lacks the craftsmanship and attention to detail that distinguish that genre's twists and turns -- the real puzzler is why such a lousy play got such a high-wattage production." & "If nothing else, "Dust" is a wonderful example of what talented theater artists can do with very little."
