"The unevenness of the acting is sometimes distracting, especially any time that Casey Groves (who plays Censor, Beaufort's counselor and the sanest character in the tale) is around, because he's so much better than everyone else." The New York Times- a review of the Off Broadway production of 'The Witlings.'"
