Times Today

"The state of American drama is always being lamented, but the situation isn’t quite as bleak as it seems from the seats of Broadway and our major nonprofit theaters. Look downtown and you will find a new generation of adventurous writers like Ms. [Jenny] Schwartz, Anne Washburn, Will Eno, Young Jean Lee and Sheila Callaghan who aren’t trying to compete with the realism of television. Instead, in their very modern way, they are making a rather old-fashioned case for the power of the written word." - Jason Zinoman, The New York Times from his review of God's Ear
