"The fiery ROSIE PEREZ brings her NATURAL ZEST AND WONDERFULLY DISTINCTIVE VOICE. It's not likely that we'll have another occasion to hear this FEISTY COMIC ACTRESS give a dramatic reading of King Lear's famous speech! Playwright MOLLY SMITH METZLER has an affinity for CRISPLY FUNNY DIALOGUE." - The New York Times
"There's something SO SYMPATHETIC about DAVID HYDE PIERCE's WRY PORTRAYAL that he comes to resemble Bob Newhart in his finest hour—an intelligent and sensitive man forced to suffer fools and idiots with patience and grace. CLOSE UP SPACE is A GENERATIONAL PLAY WITH AN EDGE OF IRONY and A FLASHY TURN FROM ROSIE PEREZ, whose comic timing is IMPECCABLE! MOLLY SMITH METZLER has given the material an ABSURDIST COMIC VENEER, and helmer LEIGH SILVERMAN has SHREWDLY CAST AGAINST TYPE." - Variety
