Reviews

"The play's genially comic narrative of the conflicts, fantasies, and isolation of the working poor, a trio of low level employees at a struggling cinema in Western Massaschusetts, is vivid, amusing, and quirky." - Bill Marx, The Arts Fuse

"An idiosyncratic original... The Flick slides from funny to wrenching and back again." - Don Aucoin, The Boston Globe

"Funny, heartbreaking, sly and unblinking...The Flick may be the best argument anyone has yet made for the continued necessity and profound uniqueness of theater." --Jesse Green, New York

"Hilarious and ineffably touching... Ms. Baker's peerless aptitude for exploring how people grope their way toward a sense of equanimity, even as they learn to accept disappointment, is among the things that make her such a gifted writer." --Charles Isherwood, New York Times

"This hypnotic, heartbreaking micro-epic about movies and moving on is irreducibly theatrical." --David Cote, TimeOut New York

"Annie Baker, one of the freshest and most talented to emerge Off Broadway in the past decade, writes with tenderness and keen insight. Her writing is a great blessing to performers. The Flick draws out nakedly truthful and unadorned acting. This lovingly observed play will sink deep into your consciousness." --Charles Isherwood, New York Times

"Perfection. Annie Baker is a genuine original, the real thing. She follows last season's Uncle Vanya version with this bold absolutely mesmerizing comic drama." --David Finkle, Huffington Post

"Ms. Baker is a master miniaturist chasing big themes -- love and loyalty; kindness and cruelty; fantasy and reality. As in The Aliens and Circle Mirror Transformation, the dialogue is uncannily, you-are-there authentic." --Joe Dziemianowicz, NY Daily News
