Miami New Times Great
Review Of “The Recommendation”

“TWO AMERICAS COLLIDE IN THE COMPELLING THE RECOMMENDATION AT
ARTISTIC VIBES”

“Caren’s earnest play, directed with surprisingly comic zeal by Arturo Rossi, explores the politics, calculations and negotiations that underpin friendships”

“Rossi uses the minimalist space with savvy, staging some of the action in an open living-room arrangement underneath the proscenium, where the actors slyly interact with the audience and, at one point, the sound technician.… in one inspired touch, Delapenha delivers a monologue lit only by the glow of his cellphone, the actor’s shadow towering behind him.”

“Vandepas reminds us why he’s one of the most gifted and underrated actors in South Florida theater, crafting a detestable douchebag who wields influence like a fifth appendage, but who can transform into a whimpering child when his well-laid plans evaporate.”

“Walton is equally phenomenal, introducing Dwight with a delusional, implacable bipolarity and, in the play’s climax, a seething authenticity that brings the strange quirk of his earlier scene into clearer focus.”
