"'David Duchovny makes impressive stage debut in... MCC Theater's world premiere of The Break of Noon, a thought-provoking new drama by Neil LaBute… Duchovny's deeply-felt performance is abetted by three fine actors depicting two characters each. Amanda Peet is vivid in contrasting roles as the bitter ex-wife and trashy girlfriend, aided nicely by costume designer ESosa's changes in her appearance. All coy gesticulations and sweetly insinuating tones, Tracee Chimo is deadly funny as a glib TV interviewer. John Earl Jelks is especially striking as a lawyer who counsels John about his options in the media minefield while licking his own lips over their likely profitability."
"Unsettles exactly as it should... In this new work from the prolific and undeniably talented Neil LaBute… The sole survivor of an office massacre hears the voice of God amid the carnage... A nifty coup de théâtre that demands that you rethink everything you’ve seen up to that point."
--The New York Times
"A darkly comic morality tale. Tracee Chimo is hysterically funny as both the talk-show host and the hooker. John Earl Jelks has some pungent moments as the lawyer and a detective and Amanda Peet is appealing as both Smith’s estranged wife and an ex-lover."
--New York Post
"Neil LaBute has done something quite different in this new play: He’s created what basically amounts to a Rorschach test of faith."
"Director Jo Bonney gives [The Break of Noon] a slick production, with scenes gliding smoothly into one another over the show's hour and a half."
