    What the popular press said...

    "Fitfully moving, patchily eloquent but often preposterous drama."
    Charles Isherwood for New York Times

    "It's all so vague that it doesn’t add up to a full picture."
    Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

    "It's as if the playwright (Tennessee Williams) had gathered his favorite ingredients, jammed them into a microwave and pressed the "nuke" button."
    Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

    "Mesmerizing production."
    Erik Haagensen for Back Stage

    "It isn't much pleasure to sit through."
    Robert Feldberg for The Record

    "Thanks to the Roundabout Theatre's expert staging featuring a bravura performance by Olympia Dukakis, this "Milk Train" is certainly worth a stop."
    Roma Torre for NY1

    "The static, repetitive drama remains far more talk than action but it's often a pleasure to hear such wordplay."
    Michael Summers for Newsroom Jersey

    "'The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore' is like bankrolling a political campaign -- not something you should attempt with a bunch of amateurs. Happily, the pros are in charge for this slick production."
    Marilyn Stasio for Variety
