I strongly and wholeheartedly recommend this production, especially for anyone who loves a good murder mystery. I can hardly wait to see what else Fierce Backbone has in store – they are truly a company worth watching.
Bob Leggett – LA Examiner
To be perfectly honest, the fleet of actors, exposition, and initial affected language was overwhelming at first, but once Blackburn’s scenes secure a more intimate focus with his characters, it’s much easier to appreciate what the production is shooting for.
Vincent Smetana – Cinesnatch
At times the complexity of Athenian history circa 415 B.C. and the sheer number of characters make the tale a bit confusing and hard to follow, but “The Rock of Abandon” is always engrossing and fun to watch.
Neal Weaver – Backstage
“The Rock of Abandon” is not a bullet with my name on it.
Bill Kamyar – WeHo News
Rock of Abandon is a daring experiment that successfully recreates an ancient world.
