Washington Post - Recommended

"...“Savage” is a wonderful play for actors, and director Lise Bruneau —a more than capable performer herself —has assembled a cast that revels in Shanley’s acid wit and high passion. Most arresting is the raw turn by Veronica del Cerro as Linda Rotunda, the 32-year-old sexpot whose beau has just told her he, um, needs to start seeing ugly women."

"...Director Lise Bruneau has taken a beautifully crafted script and turned it into a solid and very affecting production, full of humor, pathos and excellent acting."

Talkin Broadway - Recommended

"...The actors make the most of Shanley's meaty, juicy roles, luxuriating in the flights of language—simultaneously poetic and profane—and rich Bronx accents. Diaz stifles her usual physical grace, conveying Denise's frustrated passion through penetrating eyes and awkward postures. Del Cerro is a hoot in her cleavage-baring sweater and snug jeans, never holding back, and Sokolowski gives a haunting, and haunted, performance as a woman who copes with disillusionment one drink at a time."

"...MetroStage presents Savage in Limbo, directed by Lise Bruneau. It’s a play about five thirty-two year-olds who meet in a Bronx bar and end up sharing their desires for change in their discouraging lives."

"...Masterfully paced by director Lise Bruneau, the execution of the dark comedy is astonishing at times and the exceptional acting of the superb cast should be on every theater fan's "must see" list. Savage In Limbo is an engaging and captivating show that is not to be missed."

Once in a while all of the stars align to create a magical theatre event like MetroStage’s production of John Patrick Shanley’s Savage in Limbo. The script, the cast, the direction, the performances, and the venue are all so perfectly in tune that the production inspires nothing but praise.
