Quotes & Highlights
- "Powerful...holds us in its grip...a contribution to gay literature." --<em><a target="_blank" href="http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/arts/culture/la-et-cm-slipping-review-20130417,0,7968978.story">Los Angeles Times</a></em>
- "Be prepared to have your heartstrings tugged and tear ducts flowing, especially during the Eli/Jake scenes near the end. A number of hysterical bawdy jokes will make you laugh amongst the tears." --<em>Culture Spot </em>
- "The deconstructed text is challenging... but the experience is compelling and occasionally shocking (there is also male nudity in this production). Ultimately, the play's strength lies in its honest depiction of abuse and loneliness."--<em>Stage and Cinema </em>
- "A young man's traumatic journey from adolescence to adulthood comes to vivid, heartbreaking, yet ultimately hopeful life in Daniel Talbott's 2009 drama <em>Slipping</em>, whose Los Angeles premiere reunites its pair of New York stars under the incisive direction of its multitalented writer." --StageSceneLA.com
- "<em>Slipping</em> is an important new play, one that needs to be shared on whatever level it is offered. Because Talbott's writing and staging is so clearly filmic, it wouldn't be surprising if this run in our reclaimed desert might find it has an even more apparent future than the emergence of its original star." --<em>ArtsInLA </em>
- "The quality of the writing maintains a high level of behavioral observation, makes its points deftly without untoward highlighting and gives the actors room to supply considerable illuminating detail, even when they devolve into testosterone-fueled fidgets. The playwright, himself an actor, also directs, and he knows how to orchestrate the dramatic values to best advantage." --<em>The Hollywood Reporter </em>
- "The L.A. premiere of this excellent piece, produced by the New York-based Rattlestick Playwrights Company that introduced the play Off-Broadway, is graced with a handsomely mounted and consummately acted rendition." --<em>Backstage </em>
- "This is a remarkable production of a striking play, produced by Addie Johnson-Talbott and Gaalan Michaelson with style and grace for Rattlestick-West Productions, exhibiting much insight into teenaged and young-twenties angst. A coming-out play, it skips most of the clichés inherent in the genre and allows real characters to come into their own. Highly recommended for all audiences." --stagehappenings.com
