NEW YORK TIMES: Lucas Hedges Moves From ‘Manchester’ to the Stage

“Lucas Hedges, you’ll be happy to hear, is just as comfortable being uncomfortable onstage as he is onscreen…his body is eloquent with radioactive misery. Mr. Hedges’s performance is matched in style and assurance by those of two other newcomers to New York theater. They are the 21-year-old Mr. Smith (of "The Get Down" on Netflix), whose 14-year-old Bobbie is a one-man fireworks display, and the film and television actress Stefania LaVie Owen, 19, who gives a beautifully drawn performance as Jennifer.” –New York Times

“A terrific, breakneck new play by Anna Jordan. Trip Cullman’s otherwise crystalline production — it’s his best work in quite a while. Remarkable performances of Lucas Hedges as Hench and Justice Smith as Bobbie and Ari Graynor conveys with great pathos, the slight eke of love a ruined soul may yet be capable of.” – Vulture

4 stars! “Writing with vigor and sympathy. Trip Cullman once again adeptly charts a modern teenage wasteland. The intense and soulful Hedges and the astoundingly energetic Smith give a pair of extraordinary performances.” -Timeout NY

“Powerfully acted and impressively staged, given vivid life under Trip Cullman’s unsparing direction. Lucas Hedges, makes an impressive stage bow. Justice Smith is a tornado of kinetic energy, pubescent prattle and careening emotions, as he practically bounces off the walls (and literally bounces off their sofa-bed). Ari Graynor gives a nuanced turn as the easy-to-loathe, irresponsible mother, shading her character’s shocking selfishness with flashes of guilt, terror and despair. Stefania LaVie Owen brings an undercurrent of vulnerability to her assuredness, a complexity of ache to her pain and ultimately a sad yearning to understand the depths of human wounds that defy easy fixes.” –Variety

“Lucas Hedges simmers, explodes in his stage debut. This gifted young actor raises the stakes to James Dean-ian heights in his smashing stage debut as Hench.” - Deadline
