REVIEWS

JERICHO OFF-BROADWAY | 59E59

“Witty, consistently clever, and painfully significant, an intelligent intertwining of the nature of grief, cultural identity, fraught relationships and shared tragedy... Mr. Canfora has delivered a smart, hard-hitting drama filled with biting wit.”

-  Anita Gates, The New York Times

THE SOURCE | NEW JERSEY REPERTORY

“Outstanding… This keenly written play, with its contemporary subject matter, well-developed characters, and plot twists, will keep you enthralled from the first minute to the last…[the cast] master Canfora's intense, sharp, and witty dialogue.” 

- Marina Kennedy, Broadway World

POETIC LICENSE OFF-BROADWAY | 59E59

“Poetic License coincidentally bears a superficial resemblance to another play currently running in New York, Teresa Rebeck’s “Seminar”… Both plays are smart one-acts about revered writers, asking just what kind of hideous men those writers are. But “Seminar” mostly romanticizes the art of writing. “Poetic License,” an unsettling drama by Jack Canfora…with verbal acuity…looks at the ugliness behind the scenes.”

– Anita Gates, The New York Times

“It’s hard to imagine that a crackling drama could revolve around a poet laureate’s career. But Jack Canfora’s “Poetic License” manages to render a tale of artistic ambition and hidden secrets with the breathlessness of a well-paced thriller.”

- The NY Post

“Sharp-tongued and clever…the characters are left in tatters by Canfora’s script.”  

- The Associated Press

“White-hot entertainment”

– Time Out New York
