REVIEWS

 

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY:

“Funny and heartbreaking”

VARIETY:

“Kit Williamson’s hilariously serious performance as an angst-filled wannabe revolutionary strikes exactly the right note. As he wanders around his little town in post-Communist Poland, vandalizing cars and trashing phone booths, the unfairness of everything becomes so oppressive he delivers Bogus’ every line like it’s a prelude to a fistfight… Bogus’ interactions are almost always funny and occasionally deeply touching.”

LA WEEKLY:

“Gay, straight, whatever your background or belief — humans are messy, unpredictable, scary, loving creatures. Playwright and actor Kit Williamson‘s web series, the dark comedy Eastsiders, captures this idea with stark, surprising beauty.”

Eastsidersis not just a story for LGBT viewers. Gay men and women have been relating to straight relationships on TV for years. Cal and Thom’s journey trying to love each other through the mess they’ve created, be there for their friends and figure out who they are to each other and themselves feels pretty damn universal.”

THE ADVOCATE:

“Eastsiders debuted two episodes in December to wide critical acclaim, proving the field is not yet oversaturated, and fans were jonesing for more.”

FRONTIERS:

“Emotionally riveting… a raw and realistic look at the not so pleasant side of gay love.  [Kit Williamson] will break your heart in this.”

EDGE NY:

“Kit Williamson… is strikingly intense [as] the angry young man at the center of Przemyslaw Wojcieszek’s searing Made in Poland.”

BACKSTAGE:

“The excellent cast brings authenticity as well as humor to their roles”

NYTHEATRE.COM

“Stephanie March, Peter Hermann, Michael Laurence, and Kit Williamson are all letter-perfect as Barry’s studio crew. Watching them silently interact through the booth glass is another one of the show’s many highlights.

Talk Radio is that rare occurrence on Broadway these days: the lucky convergence of a master director and a talented group of actors working on a smart, savagely funny script that is both entertaining and thought-provoking.”

CURTAIN UP:

“Barry’s radio station colleagues… deliver on all counts.”

NYTHEATRE.COM:

“The large cast works energetically and well together… Kit Williamson is noteworthy as a strait-jacketed patient who plays the rabble-rouser Socialist Jacques Roux.”

BACKSTAGE:

*Critics Pick

“This ambitious company of mostly young actors is doing a surprisingly credible job of delivering Peter Weiss’ difficult play.”

 EDGE NY:

“The heart of the work has always been the roundelay of the ensemble… and this young cast has brought subtle control to the chaotic proceedings.”

NY THEATRE WIRE:

“Access Theater Gallery Space, with its bare white walls and bare wooden floor, was easily turned into an asylum by lighting and set designer Ben Kato. The rest was accomplished by the formidable cast… a strong ensemble that creates a vivid picture of the mentally ill with their disjointed movements and vacant stares.”

OFF OFF BROADWAY REVIEW:

“Each of the rude mechanicals had a scene to steal… especially Kit Williamson (Flute), who throws himself into character as Thisbe subtly, but with abandon (yes, it’s possible).”
