A few of our favorite moments from some of our favorite writers …
Jay Weitz in the Columbus Alive:
Just as Beethoven played with the little details of a simple waltz, Available Light makes a graceful minuet of Kaufman’s intricate play.
Richard Sanford of Screen of Distance:
It’s one of the most consistently acted, moving productions of a play I’ve seen in town in years – a simple story so beautifully told that I was moved to tears by the time it was over and I have a hard time picturing anyone I know not walking out enjoying it.
Richard Ades in The Other Paper:
… it does add up to an enjoyable evening of drama and music, thanks largely to director Eleni Papaleonardos and her consistently good cast …
Josie Merkle delivers intelligence and prickly impatience as Katherine; Acacia Duncan radiates concern as her protective daughter, Clara. Adam Humphrey is appealing as Mike, a love-struck nurse who attempts to worm his way into Clara’s life even though she insists she’s too busy worrying about her mother.
Michael Grossberg in The Columbus Dispatch:
Under the sensitive direction of Eleni Papaleonardos, a fine nine-person ensemble hits virtually all of the play’s lilting grace notes of nobility, tenderness, passion and yes, grace.
With its artful tapestry of monologues, dialogues, lighting, sound and multimedia projections, Available Light illuminates one of the most intriguing and thought-provoking recent Broadway plays.
