"A mesmerizing tour de force"

Wed, Feb 23, 2011

Dispatch theater critic Michael Grossberg has weighed in on last night's premiere of Anna Deavere Smith's Let Me Down Easy. Some of what he had to say:

"A mesmerizing tour de force"

"Smith builds a captivating performance piece full of heart, humor and quiet heroism."

"A terrific actress in any medium."

"Let Me Down Easy is so beautifully performed, expertly put together and richly compelling in its variety of humanity."

"This rare tour of an off-Broadway hit is vibrant with life."

"Let Me Down Easy is likely to let no one down, even those fans (like me) with high expectations."
