My Favorite Review so Far...
Is here. It's by Margaret Friedman in the Seattle Weekly:
And here's my favorite quote.
"Longenbaugh & co. shamelessly heist your heart when you least expect it. You should let them."
On top of this being a wonderfully generous review, I love how Margaret isolates every moment in the show that worked for her, and then tries to figure out who made it happen so she can give them credit: David Baldwin's lighting in "Stardust," for example, or Anthony's protean appearance in "Moon."
It is rarely a pleasure to be reviewed. Even a positive review normally has something to annoy. Not this one. (Though to give credit where it's due: the "stunningly naked" actress in "The Picnic" is Katherine Suttie-Graham.)
