More love for Why We Left Brooklyn

Scott Brown from New York Magazine says  "See Why We Left Brooklyn" calling it "Frowsy, funny, quietly furious."

Jim Taylor from WCBS Radio calls Why Left Brooklyn "A love letter from a borough like none other from a generation like none other" during this interview with the cast.

"Why We Left Brooklyn is a tragedy of manners in the realist tradition of Chekhov and Ibsen....Kyle Ancowitz’s deft realization of Matthew Freeman’s airtight script will make everyone over the age of thirty who holds a liberal arts degree squirm uncomfortably. But it’s a good kind of discomfort, a salutary kind. Why We Left Brooklyn reminds those of us who haven’t achieved super-stardom that our struggles and our problems are no less valid because someone else has had it worse, or has been a bigger success, or has moved out of the borough." - Cultural Capitol

“The dialogue — satiric wit, intelligence, humor and insight — that emanates from the mouths of Mathew Freeman’s characters is fresh, and makes Why We Left Brooklyn a particular pleasure “ - Woman Around Town
