'Lyonne was vivid, accurate, and profound in his performance of this violent yet delicate dance of rejection, despair, and ultimately, forgiveness.'

As Hippolytos…

The Los Angeles Times Raves:

“Pablo Lyonne turns Hippolytos into an exceedingly sympathetic character, the pathos of his character’s demise, in the arms of his guilt-wracked father, makes clear why Aristotle called Euripides “The Most Tragic of the Poets”.” Says:

“It is Pablo Lyonne’s Hippolytos who dominates the production. Dark, handsome, and athletic, he plays the prince as a goody-two-shoes and makes his hubris believable.”

The Daily Variety Commends:

“Lyonne is particularly memorable in a hilariously mean-spirited rant about the evil of women.”

Backstage Honors:

“Lyonne has that intense, youthful focus/blindness thing going on that makes his Hippolytos work.”

LA Weekly Raves:

“The Acting is Flawless.” Praises:

“Pablo Lyonne finds the fierceness in the determinedly celibate Hippolytos.”

Santa Barbara Independent Tributes:

“Pablo Lyonne was tremendous – vivid, accurate, and profound in his performance of this violent yet delicate dance of rejection, despair, and – ultimately – forgiveness. The final scene in which the dying Hippolytos forgives Theseus for his fatal anger, was as moving and immediate as any contemporary drama and all the more provocative for having crossed the millennia to make us cry in Malibu today.”

In Peter Shaffer’s Equus…

The Davis Enterprise Hails:

“Pablo Lyonne as Alan Strang brings incredible intensity and passion to the role, which is difficult enough in content alone but also required him to do a scene completely nude. It is a credit to Lyonne’s dramatic abilities that the nude scene is not a shock, but blends smoothly into the whole performance. Lyonne’s energy boils so hot throughout the play that the nudity is a seemless culmination of the psychological agony he endures as a result of his obsessions.”

In David Mamet’s American Buffalo…

The Winters Express Commends:

“Bobby played by Pablo Lyonne, a street kid whose naive demeanor belies his less than innocent lifestyle. Lyonne plays the role well, he is almost likeable, almost the object of pity. His portrayal reminds one of a stray dog who will follow anyone with food, then turn around and bite them.”

In Samuel Beckett’s ‘Endgame’…

The Winters Express Says:

“As Clov, Pablo Lyonne is earnest and sincere and on a number of occasions he hits the nail on the head, becoming in the same instant both absurdly humorous and extremely sad.”

In John Steinbeck’s ‘Of Mice and Men’…

The Chico Enterprise Record Praises:

“Lyonne is first rate and Curley struts about like a banty rooster ready to bully anything that looks weak or shows fear.”

In ‘The Diary of Anne Frank’…

The Butte County Reporter Raves:

“Pablo Lyonne, as their tormented son Peter, is the hidden gem of this play in a fascinating performance.”
