★★★★ Critic’s Pick. Antlia is a sheer joy, elegantly weird and wonderfully vivid with ghost stories and songs.—David Cote, Time Out New York
Anne Washburn’s eerie ‘Antlia Pneumatica’ is elegantly directed by Ken Rus Schmoll. Guessing at the surprise twist is part of the pleasure of the play.—Jacob Gallagher-Ross, Village Voice
As she demonstrated in the thrilling Mr. Burns, Anne Washburn is a writer of questing imagination and convention-bending technique.—Ben Brantley, The New York Times
