“Adam R. Burnett’s Erik Satie/If I Told Him/Erik Satie preserves Stein’s opacity by combining disparate texts with New York–based artist Alejandro Guzman’s wooden sculptures, which materialize — without attempting to rationalize — her use of language as building blocks. Why? As Stein would have answered, “For this is so. Because.” – Molly Grogan, The Village Voice

As a super fan of all things Absurd, nothing brings more dynamism to the contemporary stage than a nonsensical song and dance like Burnett’s play.” – Danielle Kalamaras, The Bushwick Daily
