"Majestic! Transfixing!"--Christopher Kelly "New Jersey Star-Ledger "
"A grave and gossipy whisper of a play set in the Bohemian grooves of Manhattan in 1958, portrays a time when our thirty-seven-year-old birthday boy was down on his luck and feeling defeated. His name, by the way, is Joe Papp. If you keep quiet and behave well, even when others at this improvised shindig do not, you'll hear the murmur of cultural history in the making."--Ben Brantley "New York Times "
"The story of a Great Man... Joe Papp's influence on twentieth-century theater is as outsize as Robert Moses's on urban development, though blessedly for the better... Illyria starts in media res, with the inner circle of the fragile yet ascen-dant New York Shakespeare Festival talking business and eating sandwiches... Nelson, as always, invests us in what precisely each person we're beholding would be feeling in this particular moment in history."--Alan Scherstuhl "Village Voice "
"A must-see for anyone who cares about the theater."--Robert Hofler "The Wrap "
"Gorgeous. Delicate & absorbing."--Sara Holdren "New York Magazine "
