PRESS AND REVIEWS
“Tracy Brigden’s direction of this knotty, weighty work is speedy and well-managed, thanks in no small part to Gianni Downs’s clever set.”
Greg Kerestan, Broadway World
February 4, 2016
“Reddin shows his mastery of craft in the structuring of the play […] Director Tracy Brigden uses her staging to highlight this structure: Tindle never leaves the stage, and often remains at its center, while the rest of the actors glide in and out around him.”
Wendy Arons, Pittsburgh Tatler
February 3, 2016
“Mr. Reddin gives us a lot, and director Tracy Brigden and her talented designers (especially projection designer Jordan Harrison) give us the imaginative visuals, music and soundtrack of the soaring fictional-historical backdrop.”
Christopher Rawson, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“[…] it’s also a play that dwells on the questionable morality of Faustian bargains that people and nations make to achieve their goals.”
Alice Carter, Tribune Review
February 2, 2016
“Reddin’s script […], sparkles in City’s version–as efficient as a space station kitchen–compact, practical, equipped with what’s needed for the trip.”
Yvonne Hudson, Pittsburgh in the Round

“But as for the whole thing: Oh yeah, it’s interesting.”
Mike Vargo, Entertainment Central Pittsburgh

“[Jonathan] Tindle is a treasure as the analytical and pragmatic [Arthur Rudolph].”
