The Golden Year
The WorkShop Theater, June 2013
WorkShop Theater Company
"The plight of the retiree is one you rarely encounter in drama. But in a world where the aging, trusty systems are coming apart, there are just as many questions on the other side of 65 as there are on the way up."
- Jenna Scherer, Time Out NY
"The Golden Year is poised for an open-ended run at a suitable New York theater, and is a natural for regional theater. Director Kathy Gail MacGowan has skillfully set the pace"
- Don Collester, WDVR Radio, NJ
"Splendidly directed by Kathy Gail MacGowan."
- Ruth Antrich, Times Square Chronicles
"Kathy Gail MacGowan’s direction is skilled and razor-sharp, uniting the dynamic text with excellent actors and effective design elements."
- Andrew Rothkin, NYTheatre.com
"Every once in a while, an off-off-Broadway production jumps up and reminds you that there is some really good theatre happening up and down the side streets of Manhattan."
- Phil Dorian, Scene on Stage
“WorkShop Theater has a long list of world premiers to its credit, none more worthy than Damiano’s enjoyably insightful one-act play - … destined for a wider audience...”
- Fred Winship, UPI International
