Talkin**Broadway**! By Matthew Murray Highlights:

"Performed by a sparkling cast, Waiting for Waiting for Godot is a masterful collection of theater insider jokes, though you needn't be "in the loop" to enjoy the evening."

"Murphy and Landman make a fine comedy duo with Landman as Ester playing imperious buffoon to Murphy's callow Val. Both are terrific as they engage in vaudevillian cross-talk and deftly executed slapstick bits, but Sulia Rose Altenberg as Laura almost steals the show, playing "straight man" to the two tramps. It's all positively absurd. Don't miss it!"

Aisle Say Twin Cities! By Liz Byron Highlights: "I’m not usually a fan of physical comedy, but one simply must admire the pure skill with which Sam Landman and Gabriel Murphy play their parts. The two bounce off each other, both verbally and physically, as naturally as if they've been doing it for years."

"Waiting for Waiting for Godot is clever and delivered with incredible skill. Highly recommended for theatre folk, Beckett fans, appreciators of physical comedy and/or comedy about nothing (Seinfeld fans, make haste!), and anybody who enjoys a brief dose of absurdity (show clocks in at about 100 minutes including intermission)."

By Pamela Espeland Highlights: "Now at the Open Eye Figure Theatre, Loudmouth Collective’s production of Dave Hanson’s parody of Samuel Beckett’s absurdist play is smart, speedy and superbly silly."

"Mention must be made of Sulia Rose Altenberg’s brief appearance as Laura, the assistant stage manager. After declaring “Acting is easy! They let anyone do it!” she demonstrates with a dramatic reading, complete with spoken lighting cues."

"Directed by Matt Sciple, “Waiting for Waiting for Godot” is a thoroughly enjoyable evening in a warm and intimate space, well-acted, entertaining and without a dull moment."

Cherry and Spoon! Highlights of the review: "Waiting for Waiting for Godot is one of the funniest plays I've seen this year, a flawlessly executed production of a clever and absurd play based on another clever and absurd play."

"what a treat it is to watch them be fun and playful, while still putting on a sharp and all-around high-quality production with a dream team of cast and creative"

"They say comedy is hard, and I have no doubt a lot of work went into making this play look so effortlessly smooth in its complicated verbal and physical choreography."

Jill is one of my favorite reviewers because she's so kind and specific about the details she notices at every show you see, but she is so great at highlighting yours and her favorite moments.

Single White Fringe Geek! By Matthew Everett (He really disliked the show, but thinks all of us onstage and behind the scenes are cool beans.)

Highlights: " there’s not a single thing wrong with Loudmouth’s production. The cast of Sam Landman, Gabriel Murphy and Sulia Rose Altenberg are all just as good as you would expect them to be - by which I mean, very good, very gifted comic performers, who always deliver their best work no matter what project they’re in, making bad plays bearable and great plays even greater."
