Reviews

"Gorgeous . . . Extremely imaginative and hypnotically beautiful." --Marilyn Stasio, Variety

"[An] emotional tsunami . . . An extraordinary story [from] a singular new voice in American theater." --David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter

"Ms. Ruhl's drama [The Oldest Boy] is among the most easily accessible from this poetic, venturesome playwright . . . It is marked by Ms. Ruhl's inquisitive intelligence, clean-lined eloquence and spiky humor." --Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

"Bewitching, ingenious and seriously moving." --Linda Winer, Newsday
