In Coronado, (now playing Sunday, Monday and Tuesdays at 8pm, until March 27, 2012) his mystery-infused storytelling is as strong as ever, but his grasp of the theatrical medium is not. Nevertheless, with its tightly-constructed and intricate narrative, Coronado is an interesting experiment and this critic recommends the experience.
Pauline Adamek – ArtsBeatLA
In short, Coronado is a doozy of a play noir, and one well worth checking out, particularly since its Sunday-through-Tuesday schedule makes it ideal for theatergoers eager to spice up the mid-week doldrums.

Still, this complicated set of subplots is handled rather well by director Drew Shirley and an excellent ensemble cast.
Dink O’Neal – Backstage
Director Drew Shirley has done Lehane proud, putting together an 11-person cast that deftly and flawlessly brings Coronado to life — no mean feat, considering the challenges posed by the play.
