"...Overall, Arena Stage's production of Junk is a solid, enjoyable production, and well worth taking the time to see, no matter your financial status."

Talkin Broadway- Recommended

"...While Keegan gives a dynamic performance as a man building the future, several other cast members provide crisp counterpoints: Gero, as Everson, finding that caring about his employees makes him a dinosaur in business; Macdonald, as a man who isn't prepared to lose his pre-eminent position in finance to some kid from California; Zafir, as Pronsky, rough-edged but proud and defiant despite everything; and Lise Bruneau as Gero's longtime financial advisor."

DCTheatreScene- Recommended

"...The performance quality is uniformly high. Indulge me for a moment, please, while I point out what a fine actor Keegan has become. He is the play’s focal point; and could be played as a moustache-twirling villain. Instead, he plays him as the story’s most reasonable person, motivated less by greed and vengeance than by a desire to do good, opening the nation’s wealth to excluded parties (himself included) and promoting rational economic choice, including the closing of unproductive businesses. In a scene with Amy and the couple’s baby, he almost seems like a young dad trying to provide a good start to his new family, notwithstanding that he just revealed that his last year’s pretax income was $800 million."
