CHICAGO SUN TIMES

4 out of 4 Stars! Nancy Malitz

“Cruz is solid as Miguel, the play’s anchor. The actor is an elegant veteran of Chicago area theaters,  with regional credits from Pasadena to Off Broadway.”


“Cruz is a quiet standout here, touching as the most solid character, with perhaps the most to lose.”

CHICAGO TRIBUNE

Chris Jones

“ strong acting from the trio of Esteban Andres Cruz, Chris Sheard and, especially, the fiery Roberto Jay”


“But the acting and the writing bespeak of considerable talent and, especially in the case of Cruz, a beating heart.”

CHICAGO THEATRE REVIEW

Colin Douglas

“The cast is superb”
“Esteban Andres Cruz’s solid portrayal of Miguel is the heart and soul of this production. Cruz is perfectly convincing as a sensitive young man whose patience is strained, but steady, and his dedication to family is paramount, even during the violence and uncertainty of war.”

CHICAGO READER

Catie Sullivan

“Cruz is lovably charming as a self-effacing academic who wears a tidy button-down tucked into his khakis (nice work throughout by costume designer Johan Gallardo) even when making a perilous journey over harsh terrain.”
