Under DuPrey’s careful guidance, and with Letherer and Neiman leading the way, the actors smoothly untangle Gil-Sheridan’s web of human flaws and fears. “What May Fall” is every bit an ensemble piece, but as the bus driver who is nearly smothered by her husband’s sense of panic, Letherer—who also designed the costumes—is the production’s anchor of sanity and fortitude.
Evan Henerson – Backstage
Still, if “What May Fall” tells us nothing essentially new, there’s sufficient theatricality and thematic heft afoot to justify attendance.
David C. Nichols – LA Times
What May Fall may not fundamentally succeed as an ambitious work of art, but all hands combine to make a satisfying evening of theater nevertheless.
Myron Meisel – The Hollywood Reporter
Gil-Sheridan’s crisp dialogue-driven characters are interconnected in ways that may seem a tad coincidental, but director Mary Jo DuPrey’s intimate staging artfully brings to mind the mood of ensemble films by Robert Altman.
Paul Birchall – LA Weekly
A senseless random tragedy causes nine Minneapolitans to reevaluate their lives in Peter Gil-Sheridan’s What May Fall, now getting a compelling, beautifully acted, incisively directed West Coast Premiere at Hollywood’s Theatre Of NOTE.
