"Right now the sum of the parts is unequal to the power of the individual presentations. The production seems to be in development, still searching for a form. In the meantime, I highly recommend it for its many great performances and for the beleaguered characters that have been created. They will linger in your mind long after the show has ended."

"When theatre is at its best it can change us, challenge us and unite us. “Working 2020” is like that. Inspired by Studs Terkel's book “Working,” these beautiful stories developed, written and directed by the members of the Actor's Gym resonate with the complex sacredness of humanity, sharing the deepest part of who we truly are, good, bad, ashamed and glorious."
