“…a potent stew of sensational incident…fiercely eloquent…actions always have moral dimensions in Mr. Baitz’s plays…THE PARIS LETTER is no exception…effortlessly articulate…tracing the interlocking grooves of psychology and morality.” —NY Times. “…head and shoulders above most current dramatic offerings…THE PARIS LETTER has potential to rank beside works of Arthur Miller and Tennessee Williams. Baitz writes vibrant, stingingly literate dialogue…” —Variety. “There is no shortage of plot in THE PARIS LETTER…Baitz is an intelligent, provocative writer, who specializes in moral conundrums…his characters have a complexity, a richness, a level of cultural awareness that was once standard but is now exotic…[a] stunning new play…” —NY Daily News.
