Press Quotes

'Virtuosic playwright David Adjmi nicely evokes an arrestingly skewed subculture onstage: a stinging portrait of an insular Syrian Jewish community in contemporary Brooklyn. Coolly witty'

New York Times on 'Stunning'

'A writer with a distinct voice, style and ambition'

Variety

'Slashingly funny'

New York Times on 'Evildoers'

'Brilliant... a disturbing, slyly amusing piece... There's hope for our political theater!'

New York Observer on 'Elective Affinities'
