"Now celebrating its tenth anniversary of edgy, electrifying Los Angeles theater-making, IAMA opens Season 10 with an emotional wallop. Redline is well worth a beeline to the Lounge."
"by Ernest Kearney — Forgiveness seems to be the theme of “Redline,” now playing in rep with “Sinner’s Laundry” at the Lounge Theatre in Hollywood. The Christian Durso two-character drama is premiering as part of IAMA Theatre Company’s tenth anniversary season celebration."
"Director Eli Gonda stages the monologues with a mostly unintrusive hand, letting the disturbing subject matter speak for itself. - RECOMMENDED"
"Mr. Durso’s writing is spot on and with smart direction from Eli Gonda and deeply committed, passionate performances from James Eckhouse and Graham Sibley, Redline evolves into a compelling, edge of your seat thriller. This is a taunt, visceral theatrical experience and by the time father and son reunite for the final showdown, you can cut the tension on stage with a knife."
"In Redline Christian Durso presents a riveting tale of just how one man’s five seconds of rage radically changes the lives of many. Then vastly talented and award winning actors James Eckhouse as Raymond and Graham Sibley as Jamie, with direction from Eli Gonda, transform the written word into powerful and compelling live action on stage. It is one unforgettable wild ride."
"Crisply directed by Eli Gonda, the language of Christian Durso’s play, as rendered by the superbly capable cast of two, is a wonder that flows unmediated from the characters like a mountain cataract. It is thrilling to experience. The play also has moments of suspense when the action threatens violence."
