Reviews

REVIEWS

"For a real adventure in theatre, hop on board Passengers...[It] is a fresh, idiosyncratic, irreverent comedy set in, of all places, a bus station. In eight sketches, a series of characters meet in the bus station. The encounters weave together a subtle but profound theme...Passengers is a great script. The characters are good and the dialog witty and sharp...Everything about this show is unexpected and unconventional." - Niles Daily Times

"Sam Bobrick, the talented playwright, once again shows his innate ability with this play's sharp wit, dry humor and impeccable comedic timing." - The Tolucan Times
