What the critics had to say.....
BEN BRANTLEY of the NEW YORK TIMES says ï¿½This transfixingly acted production, which opened last night at the Royale Theater, leaves you with a case of happy jitters that may keep you up hours past bedtime.ï¿½
CLIVE BARNES of NEW YORK POST says ï¿½Mantello's staging, as smooth as satin with a Velcro fastening, hits every note. Elvis has left the building. He's even put out the lights.ï¿½
HOWARD KISSEL of NEW YORK DAILY NEWS says "Keenly observed, drolly comic and intensely chilling"
ELYSA GARDNER of USA TODAY says "An entertaining spectator sport."
LINDA WINER of NEWSDAY says "Hits the country's competitive spirit below the belt and finds as much bile as testosterone. "
JACQUES LE SOURD of JOURNAL NEWS says "Thanks to Mantello, this is as superb a production of 'Glengarry Glen Ross' as you could hope for, one that is actually superior to the original. "
MICHAEL KUCHWARA of ASSOCIATED PRESS says "This powerhouse revival scorches, thanks to superb performances down the line."
