Marriage is a silly aural pleasure...What makes the insight fresh in Mr. Einhorn’s play, is the absurdist language in which it’s told. And what makes it painful is the understanding that in every marriage, someone is the genius, someone not. (CRITICS PICK)
One of the most startlingly intense shows I’ve seen. (FOUR STARS)
With stylistic brio Einhorn does what he enjoys doing most. He employs absurdist, comedic mayhem to examine outrageous social and cultural behavior.
An inspired aburdist comedy...side effects may include hilarity, we are told (It’s definitely contagious).
The acting is excellent, and the direction and writing superb…. Writer/director Einhorn handles the depths of these kinds of dilemmas with an impressive ease. As a neuroscience writer, I can attest that this is difficult to achieve.
Almost unbearably funny.
Don’t ever take a stock tip from a critic, but this one looks like a buy
Exquisitely ingenious...truly enchanting.
Einhorn directs his play with a flair for both comedy and complexity…Be prepared to be swept away, and suddenly confronted with complexities and philosophies that strike a nerve…The play leaves you breathless and spellbound…Theatre that needs to be seen and a dance that needs to be experienced
Not only tackling fractions, but simplifying them, this fills a need and thoroughly entertains...Einhorn finds ways to humorously add fractions to his tale...the pages simply ooze with the aura of a great mystery...No question—a large fraction of parents and teachers will be reaching for this. (STARRED)
True in its narrative style and its black-and-white artwork (by Eric Shanower) to the spirit of the beloved Oz books...both the action and the humor quotient are high, and Oz fans will read to the expected happy ending.
The combination of Einhorn’s wit and Shanower’s affectionate envisionings make this Oz adventure a near-tangible reality.
This slim volume introduces a math concept with a flourish of humor and embarrassing, talkative headgear. Full-page oil illustrations accentuate both the actions and expressions of Ethan’s improbable morning as Odds the Cat dominates on his head or in shadow. A marvelous teaching tool and an entertaining story.
Challenging, thought-provoking...[Dick]’s indictments of blind religious faith, tabloid TV, celebrity worship and a society gone numb seem depressingly timely four decades later. (FOUR STARS)
Philip K. Dick fans will cheer…adapter Edward Einhorn’s high-fidelity transliteration of Dick’s wryly ironic, psychedelic, 1968 hall of mirrors.
An act of fan love but also dramatically shrewd.
An exacting and purposeful project. (CRITICS PICK)
An extraordinary play…a goofy, charming, weird, and also serious evening.
A layered and darkly laced concoction. (CRITICS PICK)
“[The Iron Heel] serves up food for thought with an appealing heart-on-sleeve warmth. You may well find yourself humming some of those tunes on the way out.
Even devotees of the book—which relates how a substance called ice nine destroys the planet—may be seduced.
A striking theater piece, optimally staged.
Nothing short of astonishing...Einhorn has adapted this first book of Auster’s New York trilogy with intriguing staging and theatricality. (FIVE STARS)
With spirited direction by Edward Einhorn, the homespun, frenetic action unfolds...with slapstick and broad, vaudevillian humor.
The Dance has...a jaunty innocence and theatricality which Einhorn and his band of actors and dancers surefootedly exploit.
The production benefits from brisk direction, strong acting and an unusual focus on the internal destruction caused by radicalization, rather than empathy with the enemy.
A dark and giddy satire on conformism that was given a delirious, hilarious Untitled Theater Company production directed by Einhorn himself.
Slyly written...often beautiful
The scenes are played for irony, contradiction and some bawdy humor, which lends sympathy and humanism to the political subject and the paranoid atmosphere that defined the era ... Henry Akona’s cleverly dissonant, rhythmic music [is] deftly and tastefully orchestrated ... Like Bertolt Brecht’s poetry, this work succeeds by framing the minuscule, everyday aspects of life in the context of oppression rather than insisting on sentimental patriotism or heroics ... a tasteful and thought-provoking reminder of the rapid change brought to Central Europe in those heady and confusing days.
