Thrill Ride Productionts presents "Modigiliani" at the Open Fist Theatre. Credit: Maia Rosenfeld.

BITTER
Directed by Bjorn Johnson, the uneven cast, on a borrowed set, is unable to find the intimate realities of the broke and drunk artists who lived in Paris in 1916.
Dale Reynolds – Stagehappenings

BITTER
McIntyre has chosen a rich subject but makes disappointingly little of it.
Neal Weaver – LA Weekly

SWEET
What lifts this fine revival and manages to turn McIntyre’s dreary treatise into something to behold, however, is the burly, intensely frenetic staging of director Bjorn Johnson, himself a master of physical theater.
Travis Michael Holder – Backstage

BITTERSWEET
Whenever Marquez and Stuart are on stage together, Modigliani takes flight. Still, the overall impression left at the final curtain is of a production of jarringly uneven tones, a mood set from the play’s opening minutes.
Steven Stanley – StageSceneLA
