    Two gorgeous reviews have found their way to the web:

    From NYTheaterNow:

    http://nytheaternow.com/2014/05/28/o-walter-my-walter/

    …the play succeeds mostly because it wonderfully resists interpretation…the style is more effusively poetic, a landscape of a demented but tragic psychology, than it is political, but what’s most impressive is that everything coheres around that political structure.

    and Stagebuddy.com:

    …In addition to linking the play to Walter Reed Army Medical Center, the name Walter binds all six characters under a collective narrative. From Richard Crawford’s bumbling, embezzling Dr. Walter, to Andrew Baldwin’s masterful portrayal of a post-traumatic veteran Walter from West Virginia, we can’t deny that they’re all ‘Walter.’ They all represent the complexity of veteran life in America.
