"Laser-sharp, and cleanly written and directed by Lucky Mor, “Still... The Play Inspired By 4:44” interweaves lighthearted moments with some very serious themes. As funny as it is intense and emotional, four actors deliver a very tight one-hour emotional roller coaster ride. A good one ... extended to two additional performances–Friday, July 13, and Saturday, July 14, 2018, each night showing at 8 p.m., at the Complex Hollywood."

"I loved this play!! It is well written, superbly acted, funny, heart-warming and entirely believable. ...But for me, the single most compelling reason to see this play, aside from it being well written and well acted, is that it is the story of four black men and no one is in jail, no one is in a gang, no one is being shot, no one is dealing drugs. You won't see the hyper-masculinity that has come to be associated with black male characters—no, not in this play and maybe that is why I walked away feeling so good. I highly recommend “Still…4:44”"

"The story works because the characters work. Each character is distinct and they all come with unique challenges."

"The level of conviction was amazing! I enjoyed seeing 4 non stereotypical black men coming together and discussing real life issues that go on in the world today. It was very relatable, funny, witty, and very entertaining! 2 thumbs up!!"

"How many big issues can be crammed into an hour long play? See "Still" and you'll find out. I admit missed the promo that said that everybody had "their own secret they have been hiding" but the acting was excellent, the writing dialog believable enough and though this seems like it could be developed into something better, I totally enjoyed this work and recommend seeing it."

"All the actors are strong, but Thai Edwards, playing Ford factory worker Von, is exceptional, bursting with anger and melting in despair. He, Mor, Maceo Fisher and Kevyn Richmond have the onstage chemistry of true brothers and you'll want to know all of them better."

"Really nice show, with some of the cast from F#@k I Love You. The family drama fills up the theater and you forget where you are. I liked the funnier parts, the actor seem like real brothers. Big Jay-Z fan to, Hova would be proud."

"The writing of this play tho.... very brother is his own man with his own story. The story is is dope. I caught them 4:44 bars too had me all in from the jump. Cool talented actors going all in on the stage. They came with it!"

"Fine piece of work. It made me cry a few times, the actors were amazing! I'm dealing with the same family stuff so it really hit home. Loved and cried so hard at the ending, just beautifully done."

"Saw this on preview night and WHAT A GREAT SHOW!! It's about for brothers struggling to deal with the death of their mom and the feuds between them. The writing is really good and realistic. Acting wise it's really strong, stand out was Maceo Fisher who plays the middle brother, very charming. Going to see it again, there's so much packed into 60 mins, want to catch all the nuggets of gold!!!"
