"Let fly with the virtual confetti, please, Raw Bacon From Poland, the poignant new drama that opened on Wednesday night at teh Abrons Arts Center turns out to be an unexpected celebration of a marriage of true minds. I mean the kind of meld that occurs when a playwright and a performer seem to blend into a hypernatural unity, making artificial words sound realer than real life." Ben Brantley, The New York Times (Critic's Pick)
