"[Haidle is] able to turn the internal dramas of of the psyche into thrilling stage pictures…Haidle manages to show, with terrific theatrical panache, how we fictionalize our memories of love, idealizing the lost one and repressing the negative…shrewdly innocent, poignant dialogue…VIGILS is the work of a sophisticated playwright." —The New Yorker. "A simple, sweet exploration of human memory and grief…Haidle displays plenty of gentle humor, and also capable craft…[he] brings a fundamentally theatrical imagination." —Variety. "Charmingly life-affirming…positive comic energy…[a] generous take on human frailty…the play never stops spreading goodwill." —Washington Post. "A wise, zany, bittersweet, sexy play, with much to say about matters far beyond Sept. 11 (a date that hovers only in the subtext)…How can we say goodbye and let go, even to something that was far from ideal? How do we cope with all the idealization and guilt that can follow loss? These are the questions that Haidle's play grapples with so beautifully and sensitively, though those expecting a dark weeper will happily be tripped up by the often hilarious yet truly heartbreaking comedy he has devised." —Chicago Sun Times.
