Reviews

Praise for Lobby Hero "The combined wit and non-wisdom of these fallible (i.e. human) beings offers a fascinating reflection on those shaky internal compasses we call moral instincts . . . Mr. Lonergan, you see, doesn't work in bold blacks and whites, but in compelling shades of gray . . . Like morality, identity is relative in Lobby Hero. Few playwrights match Mr. Lonergan in making confident art out of such constantly shifting uncertainty."--Ben Brantley, New York Times "Richly entertaining work from one of the most important American writers working today."--Elysa Gardner, USA Today "This big-hearted four-person masterpiece actually eclipses the high expectations set by [Lonergan's] deservedly lauded previous plays and his Oscar-nominated You Can Count on Me."--Jason Zinoman, Time Out New York "[Lobby Hero] is a smart, funny . . . drama that derives its strength from Lonergan's keen ear for dialogue. One powerful tale."--Robert Dominguez, New York Daily News "Lobby Hero is tender but unsentimental, amiable yet never cute, psychologically generous but lean and disciplined . . . [A]n unexpected morality play that never hits anyone over the head with truths about truths."--Linda Winer, Newsday "[Lonergan] artfully intertwines private and public issues. . . . [He] has the lightest of touches and writes with deft humour."--Michael Billington, Guardian "Mr. Lonergan presents his most ambitious study to date in the damage caused by impure motives. . . . Mr. Lonergan's dialogue achieves wit through acute observation. . . . fine and original."--New York Times "Outstanding new play . . . Delightfully funny and touching."--Daily Telegraph "Fascinating comedy."--Evening Standard "Superb . . . Brilliant . . . Blissful comic writing."--Daily Mail
