"This homegrown production boasts superb acting, keen pacing, effective design and even credible fight scenes... Christian Barillasmaintains a splendid balance in the scene-stealing part of Jackie’s superficially effeminate cousin Julio, burrowing into elements of caricature while keeping the portrayal unflaggingly human."
"Sleek and satisfying production... provides the most surprising emotion of any production in the festival's opening quartet... a quickly-moving spectacle... a handsome production... Christian Barillas as Mr. Bingley, a very rich, single and desirable young man."
"An astonishing, expertly crafted tragedy that seduces and repels... It tempts you with its pulsing rhythms and evocative language until it has you fully under its spell... [the] immigrant epic is very much the Latino cousin of 'Death of a Salesman,'... only this daring world premiere doesn't just serve up one Willy Loman. It serves up seven... brought to sad, vibrant life by a profoundly capable ensemble."
"By contemporizing it and throwing in not a drip but a deluge of accessible references make it extremely funny. And relevant, passionate, philosophical and political, and a dash naughty, just as the play should be but so rarely is."
