THE SUBJECT WAS ROSES – Reviews and Audience Responses


Official Reviews

“Simply fascinating to watch … Hasn’t aged a bit in the 54 years since it first was seen in New York … Having seen the original on Broadway and cherishing much of what I could recall, I was hoping for a passing good show here, but Hayle and her actors have given me so much more than that … The company has pulled together a most ideal playing situation that serves the author’s work and the director’s vision. Kudoes to all here for letting us see a fine work, masterfully presented. Highly recommended!” J. Peter Bergman, BerkshireBrightFocus

Audience Comments

“VERY strong acting, nuanced, beautifully cast. The play enters normal life transitions but lingers enough that we are drawn in. Insight is for us here, the play exposes but doesn’t explain. We are drawn in. We NEED the model of such acting so we can better ‘perform’ our roles in life. Thank you Bridge Street Theater, thanks actors Laura Lee Ecobelli, Ron Komora and Caleb John Cushing, director Flo all hail Hayle, and staff.” Scott Myers

“One of the most poignant powerful pieces of theater I have seen in recent times. Congratulations I’m gonna talk it up.” Richard Rizzo

“Moving and dynamic performance!!!!” Linda Dixon
