Past Critical Reviews

"Sher's facility... is mesmerizing..." ~Time Out Chicago

"Sher... handles the physical and emotional demands like a pro... This was a profound trip indeed" ~ChicagoNow.com

"A formidable cast... including... the deadpan Jeremy Sher, whose killer arsenal... adds a Chaplinesque quality" ~Chicago Tribune

"Sher... is a magician" ~Chicago Sun-Times

"Victor Hugo (Jeremy Sher) just can't take it anymore... with the only fully-scripted part in the play... Hugo's presence... makes all the difference and turns the show into a rich realization of the book's themes" ~Variety

"With grand storytelling, skilled acting and the splendid possibilities of theater, 'Hunchback' -- combining eeriness, humor and classic storytelling -- is a genuine Halloween treat. And with Hugo himself, played by Jeremy Sher, as a mordant, Pirandellian guide to his characters, they are rendered with illuminating depth." ~The New York Times

"The most impressive thing about Mr. Sher's work is its construction, which exists partly on stage and partly in our minds. Where theatre critic Walter Kerr once described the work of Harold Pinter as a theatre of the blind, we might find ourselves one day describing the work of Mr. Sher as the theatre of the cast-adrift: with some of its inhabitants gently coming together, and others floating ever farther out to sea." ~KDHX 88.1FM, St. Louis

"A compelling piece of collaborative work, the images in [Mr. Sher's] play obtain an arresting force and clarity. They evoke clear, powerful feelings, even in the morning." ~St. Louis Post-Dispatch
