    What the popular press said...

    "It would be unfair to describe the character’s final transformation, but as rendered by Ms. Metcalf you can rest assured it is entirely convincing, and pretty close to heartbreaking."
    Chalres Isherwood for NY Times

    "Bracing production, which unfolds seamlessly."
    Joe Dziemianowicz for NY Daily News

    "Less riveting than it is reasonably engaging." ... The play is a vehicle for a valiant star, and Metcalf steers it with fearless confidence."
    Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

    "Bold, unflinching, and ingeniously constructed, this is a show not to be missed."
    Erik Haagensen for Back Stage

    "The play succeeds best as a showcase for Metcalf's acting skill."
    Robert Feldberg for The Record

    "Not a perfect play but Metcalf and company have made it destination theater."
    Roma Torre for NY1

    "Metcalf has found a vehicle that allows her tremendous gifts to blaze fiercely."
    David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter
