If I Forget – Reviews

The Hollywood Times
MEMORABLE COMPELLING AND RELEVANT… a play about being a brother, a sister, a husband, a wife, a parent, a child… you’ll hear yourself in there somewhere…. deep and intense think-pieces presented at the pace of screwball comedy.” — Ethlie Ann Vare, The Hollywood Times 

Ticket Holders LA 
URGENTLY IMPORTANT, BRILLIANTLY LYRICAL AND THEATRICAL… This indelible, magnificently staged and expertly performed LA debut of If I Forgot is the best mounting of a new American play I’ve seen done in 14 years… offbeat, dangerously stylized, and fascinatingly kinetic… The entire cast is splendid… I was simply too moved to talk.” — Travis Holder, Ticket Holders LA
