The Net Will Appear
"Director Mark Cirnigliaro proves at all times neatly in tune with Mallon's characters, guiding his cast deftly along a subtle and delicate plot arch. There are no great fireworks or shocking revelations here, just a gradual peeling back of two personalities' protective outer layers. Cirnigliaro, Masur, and Lawler combine skillfully to achieve a warm pace for that journey."
"In Hoboken, playwright, director, and two excellent performers combine to make those seemingly mundane moments of chit-chat revelatory and moving."
"This is a tender, moving, slice of lives. Mallon dialogue snaps with wit and craft. She in concert with director Mark Cirnigliaro create memorable characters with amazingly strong performances from Masur and Lawler."
"credit . . .belongs to Mallon’s rich text, Cirnigliaro’s deft direction and Masur’s craftiness as an actor."
"This may be the best show Mile Square Theatre has produced in its new space."
"The writing is superb, the directing goes unnoticed – which means it was also superb – and the stage, costumes and sound all complement a show which is full of, as Rory says, “nice moments.”
"Ultimately, the raw, undeniable impact of this production proves to power of another 1980s throwback catch phrase: “If you build it, they will come.” Mile Square Theatre has been built, and now they’re coming: The writers, directors, actors and talent along with their inspiration and their passion. All it needs now is you."
"I like to think, or maybe it’s just a hope of mine, that everyone has a person that is in their lives for a season, or two, that makes an imprint on the rest of their life. This play will help you remember that person and these two couldn’t do a better job of it."
