“Middletown is magic.”
“Expertly directed by John Langs, the 10-person cast works together so well, it's as if they're holding hands and merrily skipping through the text."
“The result, an unlikely synthesis of deadpan wit and emotional pyrotechnics, can be magic.”
“It's as if the script's ambient wit slowly ionizes the atmosphere until Eno finds just the right moment to hurl a lightning bolt our way”
“an earnest, dissonant yearning that vibrates between grandiosity and humility”
“whoever you are, you are meant to be here. This play’s for you. As manifested in this excellent production, directed by John Langs, it probably is.”
“very funny … laced with myriad instants of absurdity”
“stirring and heartfelt performances”
“Director John Langs has put together a powerhouse of an ensemble cast and crafted the production with his usual winning style and grace.”
“an engaging look at the lives of everyday people just trying to make it through the world; whether that be through books, pills or just holding someone's hand.”
“Will Eno cleverly and sincerely pays homage to Wilder’s classic (Our Town)”
“Director John Langs ably guides a cast of flesh-and-blood actors of range and depth to embody these wispy folk on Jennifer Zeyl’s simple cul-de-sac set, and bring them to flickering life.”
“Middletown will be a moving experience for some, and for many yield a valuable epiphany or two.”
-The Seattle Times
“What looks on the surface like a slice of kitchen-sink Americana is in fact a thought-provoking, protracted musing on the nature of being: birth, death and most importantly, the inexplicable beauty of everything in between.”
“sparkling, precise, and drily hilarious language.”
“It's fun and it's funny”
“Director John Langs has assembled a top-drawer cast of actors “
-City Arts Magazine
“performances by Tavares and Riedmann are some of the best performances I have seen all year.”
“Middletown is startlingly true and poignant.”
