Quotes & Highlights
“The project is a big push for the troupe and pure protein for a niche audience with long attention spans … A lot of the discussion sounds current, even without director Bill Largess deploying much in the small Undercroft Theatre besides good clean speech to coax Shaw’s ideas our way.” -_The Washington Post _
“For anyone fond of Shaw, or, for that matter, anyone who delights in the witty and thoughtful interplay of words and ideas on stage, this is an opportunity not to be missed.” -showbizradio.com
“Washington Stage Guild’s _Back to Methuselah _is fascinating. There is a myriad of reasons to see it, and here is a unique and rare opportunity to experience this hidden Shavian gem.” -DC Metro Theater Arts (five stars)
“The set is appealingly minimal, the blocking clear and simple, the plot both minimal and simple. All the better to leave plenty of room for more ideas and personalities … the play’s fascinating topics are nowhere near exhausted by night’s end.” -DCTheatreScene.com (staff pick)
