Reviews

“Tracy Letts is a profusely gifted playwright. In Linda Vista the writing is so zingy and the playwright’s voice so sharp…Some of his most compassionate writing. "

- David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter

"One of the most-intriguing, multifaceted and divisive characters to grace the stage in a long while. "

- Los Angeles Daily News

“Lovely, funny, and sad…For all its easygoing pace and humor, Linda Vista goes to some truly dark places. "

- Bilge Ebiri, Vulture

"Letts is a master of pitch-dark comedies that measure the grisliest depths of human behavior…Linda Vista is very funny, equally unsettling…An inspired, ruthless take on the classic midlife-crisis comedy. "

- Ben Brantley, New York Times

"Linda Vista is that rarity of rarities, a long comedy that feels shorter—so much shorter, in fact, that you wouldn't willingly part with a word. "

- Wall Street Journal

Linda Vista is such a strong, warmly human, and emotionally satisfying comedy of crotchety manners…The dialogue is razor sharp…Altogether lovely, when you stop to wipe your tears from all those howls of laughter. ”

- Steven Suskin, New York Stage Review

"Funny, edgy, smart. "

- Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
