Reviews of There Is a Happiness That Morning Is

Review by Barbara Waldinger in Berkshire On Stage “Fascinatingly unpredictable … Imagine a play about the poetry of William Blake, one of the most complex writers ever known, written in rhymed couplets (like Blake’s poems), featuring a pair of actors portraying university professors who have been lecturing on this poet for the past fifteen years.

Review of Space Pandas in the Times Union

“Exuberantly performed and obviously a pleasure for the hometown audience, “Space Pandas” is a small, imperfect show chosen and staged with the right intentions and a generous spirit. There’s a place for theater like that.” Complete review here.

Review from B.A. Nilsson in Words and Music

“Heartbreakingly wonderful … Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune is a two-hour master class in discovering our secret selves, delivered with discursive dialogue that’s whip-crack smart, but it requires a creative team that’s as smart as the script. The stellar production at Catskill’s Bridge Street Theatre puts two fabulous actors on a set (designed by John Sowle) just stylized enough to alert us from the start to expect touches of fantasy … This is a magical love story with enough comedy to remind us of the truth in this tale. And it’s a terrific display of creative talent.” B.A. Nilsson, Words And Music

Another great review from Macey Levin on Berkshire on Stage

“Patterson and Rehn play off each other with nuance and assurance. They are real people who sound like real people… some times articulate, some times at a loss for insightful expression. Their reactions to the other’s revelations are either sympathetic or minimizing, underlining the pain of their own lives and their respective inability to empathize […]

Times Union review of Frankie & Johnny — another rave.

“The two-character play, as performed in a new production that launches the 2018 season at Bridge Street Theatre, is both immediate and timeless. Under the direction of Sara Lampert Hoover, the production feels vibrant, raw and real, and it is by turns lusty and tender. In roars and whispers, it makes a plea for love being worth the risk no matter how much it’s wounded you in the past.” – Steve Barnes, Albany Times Union

Our first review of FRANKIE & JOHNNY is a rave

“The most timeless piece of lovely romantic fluff produced by a major author in the latter half of the 20th century and a play always worth reviving and revisiting. At Bridge Street Theatre in Catskill, New York, a lovely couple of actors are giving this play everything it needs and a bit more into the bargain … This attractive, well-played production gives the McNally treasure all the life it has any right to expect.” J. Peter Bergman, Berkshire Bright Focus
