Chicago Reader- Somewhat Recommended

"...The play ends in a more convincing place than it starts, but by then it's been a hard road getting there through most of a show's worth of bickering between Vera and Michael and a lot of clunky video-projection gimmickry. There are moments in Stimpson's performance that make time stand still, but the role's stiffness as written doesn't allow her to sustain them."

NewCity Chicago- Highly Recommended

"...The dialogue isn’t as elliptical or pause-ridden as Harold Pinter’s but there’s an indirectness and sly suggestiveness here that’s reminiscent of his work. As with the British playwright’s work, “Málaga” gets under the skin. Oblique and open-ended, the play provokes and plays with our own inner ear, our individual interpretive faculty and moral sensibility. Presented free of charge by this sophisticated and ambitious troupe, “Malaga,” is a destination that should not be missed."

Picture This Post- Somewhat Recommended

"...For this writer, the additional elements didn’t quite enhance the script as much as they did muddy the intentions of our characters. If you’re like this writer, you might prefer a show that is inherently dialogue driven to let the words be the focus."
