Wednesday | Jan. 24, 2018
Debuting in St. Louis after its world premiere at Chicago's Northlight Theatre, Faceless is earning intense praise for its writing, performances and direction.
We're compiling all of the local critical reactions in this space, so be sure to keep checking back as the reviews continue to roll in! The show continues through February 4.
Judith Newmark, St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
“Thanks to actors Susaan Jamshidi and Lindsay Stock, two unusual American characters — one a brilliant Muslim lawyer, one a deeply troubled teen — spring to absorbing life in 'Faceless,' an exciting courtroom drama by Selina Fellinger."
Paul Friswold, Riverfront Times:
"Faceless is an intelligent, empathetic and moving cry for applying more humanity when solving human conflicts."
"Thought provoking, engrossing, and crackling with sharp dialog."
Richard T. Green, Talkin' Broadway:
"Every character is polished to perfection, thanks to director (BJ) Jones."
Ann Pollack, St. Louis Eats and Drinks:
"Susaan Jamshidi is Claire. It’s hard to take one’s eyes off her, so thoroughly does she inhabit the role."
Michelle Kenyon, Snoop's Theatre Thoughts:
"Tackling many issues that are at the forefront of the modern political and social conversation, this play is challenging, affecting, and impeccably cast."
