    What the popular press said...

    "She (Arianda) seems as confined by this play’s stale artifice as the fresh young Heléna is by her suffocating layers of mourning."
    Ben Brantley for New York Times

    "For a play about survival, David Grimm’s 'Tales From Red Vienna' barely registers a pulse."
    Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

    "It’s all so quaint and not always good, yet the show can be oddly satisfying."
    Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

    "Tales From Red Vienna... is a terrific farce. Which isn't good, because, essentially, it's supposed to be serious."
    Robert Feldberg for The Record

    "It’s an arresting tableau for a play that begins in breathless silence, but ends with such a groan that not even Arianda can make a graceful exit."
    Marilyn Stasio for Variety
