"The best of Program A includes author Henry Meyerson's Silence, a touching essay about two Russians who survived the Holocaust and meet shortly after immigrating to New York following World War II." - South Florida Sun-Sentinel

"In Henry Meyerson's Silence, a deeply moving piece about elderly Holocaust survivors trying to make sense of the too-early death of their beloved only son. Fierce and heartbreaking." - Miami Herald

"Pop Goes the Weasel...a sharp, very original piece uses musical chairs as a metaphor for the way we live now; it takes on a surprising added resonance in the aftermath of the World Trade Center attack...a smart and interesting work." - NYTheatre.com.
