What is revolutionary is Schwartz’s ability to make linguistic gamesmanship into something profoundly moving.”
-Helen Shaw, Time Out New York
“A playwright to reckon with.”
-Alexis Soloski, The Village Voice
“God’s Ear” is composed of virtuosic monologues and dialogues that reveal Ms. Schwartz’s gift for constructing quirky lyrical riffs that stop making sense and then start up again from one line to the next.
-Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
“This ode to love, loss and the routines of life has the economy and dry wit of a Sondheim love song…Schwartz is a real talent and she is trying something ambitious…In [her] very modern way, [she is] making a rather old-fashioned case for the power of the written word.”
-Jason Zinoman, The New York Times
“Schwartz’s rapid-fire dialogue is poignant, unpredictable and full of humorous wordplay.
The brilliantly written and staged “God’s Ear” is an original and inventive theatrical experience.”
-Jennifer Farrar, Associated Press
“Celebrating language and theatricality, God’s Ear is the kind of adventurous play that Off Broadway theaters should present more often.”
