Several Broadway and Off-Broadway producers have said that theAtrainplays would not be able to sustain a commercial run of the show. I believe they are wrong and here are just some of the reasons why:
"The audience enjoyed itself to no end. It was lots of fun"
-Clyde Haberman, New York Times
"Artistic limits stricter and stranger than any Danish film collective could have dreamed up"
-Randy Kennedy, New York Times
"Bone rattling experience, bizarre even by New York standards"
-Josh Getlin, L.A. Times
-Adam Feldman, Time Out New York
"The audience was booming with applause. There was no silencing them by the end of the night. They loved the shows."
-Alicia Anstead, Bangor Daily News
"Fascinating venture", "You must take the A train"
-Michael Portantiere, theatermania.com
"Get in on this!"
-Liz Smith, New York Post
" For sheer high-spirited, high-energy hijinks, there are few short play anthology showsfew shows periodthat can touch this one."
"Lots of fun-the entertainment content and energy level in the room are both substantially higher than at any random Broadway show."
-Martin Denton, nytheatre.com
"Enjoyably gimmicky project"
-Emma Rosenblum, New York Magazine
"The Atrainplays are raw and explosive. You never know what might happen...There is never a dull moment There is nothing else quite like it in New York.
-Richard Hinojosa, nytheatre.com
" Buy your tickets now or else, like the subway, you may find yourself without a seat."

I would support an Off-Broadway run of theAtrainplays.
