“Why MICHAEL STOCK is not headlining Broadway plays by now is a mystery to me. His interpretation is natural, relatable, multi-faceted, and riveting, culminating in the creation of a believable, three-dimensional person outfitted with honest fears and ambitions. He is at ease throughout the entire play, and his chemistry with his co-star is palpable and intense.” (Lindsey Wilson, Talking Broadway)
