"A totally convincing portrait of the artist as a working visionary...beautiful production. It's a measure of the play's success that it makes you want to rush out and renew acquaintance with Rothko's work."
Michael Billington for The Guardian
"It is a convincing, perceptive piece...finely tuned...its psychological torsions come thrillingly alive."
Henry Hitchings for The Evening Standard
"A brilliantly acted production...For the kind of intense, but often bitchily witty debate that the play conducts, it would be hard to think of better casting...Recommended."
Paul Taylor for The Independent
"It strikes me as a second-rate piece that diminishes a great artist while bumming a ride on a talent far greater than the playwright possesses himself. "
Charles Spencer for The Daily Telegraph
"Fascinating...melds high-minded debate with splashes of humanity."
Quentin Letts for The Mail
Ben Dowell for The Stage
