Theater critic Aileen Jacobson offered her assessment of 's current production, "Men's Lives," in The New York Times this past weekend.
The production has a special significance to Bay Street for a number of reasons, in that the story is set locally and of the play the Sag Harbor theater opened with during its inaugural season 19 years ago.
"Directed with care by Harris Yulin and beautifully acted by an eight-member ensemble, the revival has emotional ties both to the theater’s surroundings and to its own history as a serious dramatic showcase," Jacobson writes. "All those involved — including the sound designer, David Bullard, who envelops the audience in the cries of gulls, terns and other sea birds — are clearly trying hard to create a moving and engrossing experience."
Jacobson also gave a shoutout to set designer Andrew Boyce, saying his "sand-strewn set is evocative of the dunes that, these days, are home to only a few baymen, still struggling against state laws, and more mansion owners, vacationers and day-trippers than there were 20 years ago."
