What some of the critics have said about The Hallway Trilogy…
“To watch ‘The Hallway Trilogy’ by Adam Rapp is to enter an alternate universe…. a carnival of the desperate, the grotesque, the outrageous. [It] contains some of Mr. Rapp’s most sensitive and mature writing…[and] exciting casts of talented young actors. ”
Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
“Four Stars. Packed with solid writing and suspenseful plotting…Rapp remains a true man of the theater and a potent writer.”
David Cote, Time Out /NY1
“Tense, moving, disturbing and often funny or sardonic, with underlying mystery, hostility or violence, depending on the era.”
Jennifer Farrar, The Associated Press
“[A] superb ensemble cast.”
Elisabeth Vincentelli, The New York Post
‘Rapp’s crowning achievement…an energizing, delightfully anarchic kick in the pants to a rather sleepy theater season.”
Jason Clark, Slant Magazine
