On Waiting For The Host:
“…a show that was specifically written to be performed remotely… The brainchild of playwright Marc Palmieri, (Waiting For The Host) just may be the first full-length work written for our new surreality.”
- TDF Stages.
- “Waiting For the Host...allows a new work, a new approach to theater, a new approach to performing, a new approach to directing to take place and it is definitely entertaining. The play does not disappoint. It is real, raw, and brings some much-needed laughter; exactly what theater is supposed to do.” - Broadway World
“Call it a play within a play within a crisis… The play authentically flaunts all the glories and pitfalls of a typical online group session.” - NJ Star-Ledger.
On The Groundling:
"The Groundling is one of the surprise downtown gems of the season."
"Though it begins as formulaic showbiz farce, it takes an unexpected swerve toward heartbreak...Borrowing a neat trick from
Shakespeare, Mr. Palmieri tops off the saccharine comedy with a nicely bittersweet finish...plenty of audience members were dabbing eyes with sleeves and tissues as the lights came up." - The New York Times
"...just raw emotion and crippling inability to
communicate. You won’t stop watching for a second." - The New York Times
"A drama that'll send you screaming out of the family room. Interesting, mine-filled terrain…[Levittown] reveals the damaging side of paternal love, reaching heights of agony that are painful to watch." - Time Out
"This is a family that—if its home were a bit more picturesque—could give Eugene O’Neill's and Arthur Miller's clans a run for their money. Never less than engrossing, [Palmieri] has a firm grasp of his characters and their milieu." - New York Post
