♦ Wonderful notices across the board thus far, pointing to the superb production — gloriously intimate acting — fierce argumentation — up to the minute relevance. Really gratifying responses!
♦ From Nelson Pressely in The Washington Post. “Despite its easygoing pace and often funny dialogue, Conflict is at the heart of Theater J’s ‘The Argument’ as play takes on the weighty subject of abortion.”
♦ In Broadway World, Benjamin Tomchik raves, “Theater J’s THE ARGUMENT is Stirring and Masterfully Written.”
♦ In Washingtonian, Missy Frederick appreciates the acting above all, “Rome and Whalen take their realistically flawed characters and make them charming and sympathetic with their confident, effortless performances. Rome is radiant in the shy, early stages of love; Whalen embodies the kind of regular guy who makes a dashing first impression. They may not be the most traditionally compatible couple, but it’s hard not to root for their relationship to survive such a damaging blow.”
♦ (5 Stars) from DC Metro Theatre Arts where David Friscic writes that “Theater J is pulling out all the stops… Directed with a tight, concise flair by Associate Artistic Director Shirley Serotsky, this extremely relevant play grips from the beginning to the end.”
♦ And this just in from Seth Rose and Maryland Theatre Guide.
