(Carly Mento; StageBuddy.com) "In the play, Macbeth is also superbly performed by Zachary Libresco, Samuel Platizky, and Jay William Thomas..." (Juan Recondo; OffOffOnline.com) "I would be remiss not to mention the stellar acting and ensemble work that makes this piece so interesting and unique. This is a power packed group playing out ideas that push at the edges of performance. I feel they are not only great actors, dancers and musicians, they are committed to jumping off and away from what they know, they are alchemists creating and finding what the jaded rest-of-us might not even see. Like seeing Spalding Gray or going to the Wooster Group before they became household names, why not go watch them grow? And then you can say... I saw them when - before everyone knew how great they are!" (Alice Jane Klugherz; thefrontrowcenter.com)
