"“Dietz’s keen wit and unusual format, and his compassion for his characters, make this special—more than the standard tale of an older couple reliving and (perhaps) reviving a lost love…With intricate cleverness, Dietz evokes, mocks, paraphrases and cannily integrates aspects of Joyce’s [Ulysses] into BLOOMSDAY…And Joyce’s manipulations of time and space, subject and object…ingeniously inform the script.” —Seattle Times. “BLOOMSDAY is filled with sweet charm…Dietz’s convention of mixing the past with the present…works beautifully and when mixed with his signature rich characters makes for a wonderfully engaging time…there’s an honest and sobering realism to the piece that takes this beyond a simple romantic comedy and places it in the realm of a tragic love story…BLOOMSDAY gives us a funny, touching and stark look at what it is to be in love no matter what stage of life you’re in.” —BroadwayWorld.com. “…an ode to the ache of regret…[Dietz] lure[s] us into thinking we’re getting something familiar in the first act, only to push us out of that comfort zone into a deeply moving meditation on lost time, on the painful dissonance that comes with memory.” —Memeteria.com"
