Critic Reviews for Helena From The Wedding

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5)

Helena From the Wedding is written, directed, and played with such verve and deep, unshowy feeling that its insights on these tried-and-true themes come through with rare and startling clarity.

Among its achievements is the kind of comfortable, shaded acting we expect from seasoned professionals and a script (by the director, Joseph Infantolino) that almost scarily captures the cadences of whining white privilege.

Top Critic

None of its characters is especially interesting.

New York Post
Top Critic

The group is frequently drunk, but writer-director Joseph Infantolino's handling is lucid, a necessity to keep up the sense of vague dread and walking-on-eggshell egos.

Top Critic

This is the kind of single-location indie talkfest that could translate to the stage without much tweaking. But pacing is brisk, and perfs and writing sharp enough to engage throughout.
