2/28/14 Another stellar review from Scott at Reviews Off Broadway:
- "A mesmerizing revival."
- "Ellen’s counterpoint in the press is Walker, played nicely by Justin Hoch."
- "Mr. Hoch bring[s] a depth of humanity and dignity..."
2/27/14 So check out this review out from Chris McKittrick at DailyActor.com:
- "...Hoch carefully tows the line between hero and villain. Keep your eyes on him for the quizzical ways he reacts to Lainie and Ellen’s words – his character might be louder, but Hoch effectively hints that Walker is even more deceitful than Ellen is at her worst."
And this review from Howard Miller at TalkinBroadway.com:
- "Where Dying City asks us to be analytical observers, Lee Blessing’s Two Rooms hits us directly in the heart. ... The pairing of these two plays was a smart decision by The Seeing Place... Both the lighting and the use of music are very effective in these productions, and such attention to detail greatly enhances them."
And these audience reviews from TimeOut NY:
- "Fantastic performances by all. Very compelling and heartfelt" - Mark
- "Saw two rooms last night. Wow! All four actors were phenomenal. They are just as good or even better than a lot of what we've seen on Broadway, so to get to see this kind of quality acting for only $12 is a steal! Highly recommend it. We're definitely new fans of the seeing place." - RC
- "Saw Two Rooms tonight, and it was EXCELLENT! I actually plan on going again, it was powerful and provoking and really makes one think about how Americans are seen in other countries. The acting was phenomenal, all the characters felt real." - Lyndsay
2/21/14 We've opened Two Rooms and Dying City! Tickets are available here: Two Rooms | Dying City
