“What can you say about 75 minutes of your life? What can you say about watching a whole life’s worth of living on stage? What can you say about nothing? After all, its done, right? You’ve left. You’ve picked your card and kissed your love and are just nearly finally ready to hug the smouldering remains of your childhood goodbye and then, boo!–the dream you dreamt is pierced by these earnest, endearing, intense, accusing, cold, burning, absent, pleading, pleading eyes and you realize that somehow this was never really your life at all in the end. Unless it was. Ours. Who knows? Not me. Gorgeous, funny, and altogether painful. A masterful production of a beautiful script. While this show stung, I kept reaching my hand back into the hive for more. A real thank you, Ivan and crew. You were lovely.” – Tasha Roth
“Mr. Eno is a Samuel Beckett for the John Stewart generation.” – NY Times
