Acclaim for THE CASTLE

“Staggering…The theatre is a fitting place for these tales about broken lives…this effective production proves that there is hope for redemption.” -Diane Snyder, TimeOut

“This show has a soul-tearing bite to it…the four performers are profoundly eloquent and their unpretentious self exposure demands attention.” – Sam Theilman, Variety

“A simple, fascinating production…It gives voice to a growing segment of the public, urging that we reconsider how we treat former offenders. You have never seen four people more proud to declare their status as taxpayers.” -Andy Webster, The New York Times

“Gripping theater, true and compelling…Brings the audience to tears.” -Ida Siegal, NBC

“Four formerly incarcerated individuals recount their lives before, inside, and after prison with raw honesty and occasional tears. You leave not only moved by the stories and the courage it takes to tell them, but also the power of art to help the people who make it heal.” -Lucille Scott,

“A unique theatrical event…a searing first look at the lives of formerly incarcerated New Yorkers.” -Linda Lenzi,
