“SEXTET” press

In News, Plays on October 15, 2010 at 3:52 AM
A must see theater event. The world premiere of Tommy Smith’s new play is a cause for celebration. Sextet is a intricate puzzle box of a play … Mr Smith has created a mesmerizing roundelay of three inter cutting stories, meticulously constructed and layered with pathos and humor and heartache.”

Michael Strangeways SEATTLE GAY SCENE

“This world premiere Tommy Smith play was like nothing I’d seen before.”
Laura Dannen SEATTLE MET MAGAZINE
“An eerie psychospace for the exploration of tormented genius.”
Margaret Friedman SEATTLE WEEKLY
“The script is the score, and Washington Ensemble Theatre plays it with authority and style“.
Jen Graves THE STRANGER
The Ensemble is consistently strong and Smith is a quite good playwright.”
Jeremy M. Barker THE SUNBREAK
Intellectually rigorous, artistically challenging non-traditional theater.”
Jerry Kraft SEATTLE ACTOR
Let the spectacular, sexy, torturrific show wash over your subconscious, as your mind savors bright salvos of dialog that make sense in zigzag lightning flashes.  Smith is so talented a dramatic anarchist, I yearn to kidnap and send him to Lillian Hellman Rehab Camp, where he’d be forced at gunpoint to concoct tight plots and legible character arcs — but not if it slowed his demonic propulsiveness.”
Tim Appello CITY ARTS MAGAZINE
