Washington Post - Recommended

"...Adding hugely to the show’s impact, Reckeweg and his colleagues have carefully incorporated the music that Chaplin composed for “City Lights.” The score exudes old-fashioned sentiment and slapstick energy, and it underscores the action’s dancelike quality. A steadfast romance anchors this tale, but everything roundabout gambols with verve."

"...With the ability to stand on its own as entertainment, "Gulf View Drive" seems more complete than the previous "See Rock City" even as it leaves the door open for future installments, should they ever materialize. Let's hope Hutton tries that before the marvelous cast slips too far away."

MD Theatre Guide - Highly Recommended

"...This is a deft play that understands that every era has its downside, and it takes real courage and desire to learn to think and feel more deeply about others. It's a beautiful coda to a very gifted trilogy."

DCTheatreScene - Highly Recommended

"...Largess, aside from his masterful casting, directs Gulf View Drive with an eye for detail, maintaining an easy pace while allowing the overlapping dialogue to bubble and perk naturally. His design collaborators make the most of the jewel-box-like playing space of the Undercroft Theater. Co-scenic designers Carl Gudenius and Jingwei Dai provide a realistic, cinder block house, focusing on the May and Raleigh’s covered back porch, or lanai. Marianne Meadows provides subtle lighting, and Sigrid Johannesdottir’s period wardrobe places the characters in the correct vintage."
