    What the press had to say.....

    "Mr. Elyot (playwright) ... shares Chekhov�s sense of life as a tragic comedy and conveys it through beautifully written, often funny encounters that throb with isolation and longing."
    Ben Brantley
    New York Times

    "Engaging play." & "This production offers every bit of what the play deserves. Seven excellent actors portray characters who are as believable as they are a tad off-kilter" & "Mark Brokaw's direction is as sleek and seamless as Riccardo Hernandez's gleaming set."
    Robert Windeler
    Back Stage

    "A melancholy little memory play, sad yet compulsively watchable in its disturbing tale of friendship and family pulled apart by desire and selfishness. "
    Michael Kuchwara
    Associated Press

    "Scribe Kevin Elyot is no Pinter, but that hasn't stopped Mark Brokaw from over- (or possibly under-) directing this irony-laden Brit import as if every stilted moment were momentous, every arch line of dialogue profound. Shorn of its pretensions, "Mouth to Mouth" is a wry, mournful study of how easily a friendship can be destroyed.. The New Group ensemble sparkles aplenty, employing a snappy comedic delivery to keep the raw emotions at bay."
