Reviews

Top 10 of 2013, Frontier Psychiatrist
Honorable Mention for Best of 2013, Time Out New York

CRITICS PICK! "What makes this taut play so impressive is not that it makes us understand and even like a dangerous ape, but that it does so while imagining him as an obnoxious jerk… Staged by Moritz von Stuelpnagel with a deadpan naturalism, the laughs (and there are many) have an edge."

"Under Moritz von Stuelpnagel’s restrained direction, the brilliant Steve Boyer gives Trevor a mix of endearing goofiness and pent-up frustration that can quickly bloom into full-on rage."

"Sublime tragicomedy… Sweet, clever and weirdly touching… Trevor’s absurdist admixture of showbiz satire and real-life poignancy is continually delightful and resonant… von Stuelpnagel explores this disparity with unassuming aplomb… Funny though it is, Trevor is good for much more than a laugh."

"Trevor shows these self-loathing struggles, successfully touching on the goofy and poignant moments they bring… This contrast is heightened, creating an underlying uneasiness."

"A clever, subversive comedy... There are plenty of gifts to be found in Trevor, lovingly nourished by director Moritz von Stuelpnagel... A layered production... Stuelpnagel is a perfect match for Jones’ voice, which sometimes plants tongue in cheek but still finds a way to home in on universal concerns. A streamlined show, Trevor toes the line between mordant humor and self-seriousness with aplomb."

"A bracing dark comedy. Director Moritz von Stuelpnagel has shaped this wild play with a steady hand, and clearly created a strong structure for his fine ensemble."
