WHITE PEOPLE BEGINS PREVIEWS 1/28 AT ATLANTIC STAGE
- Broadway World

“Rogers is that rarest of creatures: an American playwright with a social conscience and the desire to make damning connections between human psychology and ideology.”
- Time Out New York

"The strength of White People, particularly in director Gus Reyes' tight and swift production, is that it takes a volatile subject and never tries to dictate emotion or force a reaction."
- BroadwayWorld.com

"Michael Shulman...as the well-intentioned but conflicted Alan is outstanding. His speech patterns, body language, and energy create a unique character whom you care about and with whom you can identify."
- NYTheatre.com

"The play succeeds best in displaying how people can unwittingly exhibit bigotry even when they mean well. The actors, directed by Gus Reyes, are impressive, especially Ms. Brooksher, whose anger conceals a fragile helplessness."
- The New York Times

“John Dossett as 'Martin' is wonderfully unapologetic”
- Variety

“In brutally honest confessions that eat through protective layers like acid
from a battery… the piece never strikes a false note… rare plays like this
one help lift the veil.”
- The Los Angeles Times

“EXPLOSIVE... Nothing prepares you for what you are about to
- Theatreworld Magazine

“A revelation. WHITE PEOPLE is remarkable. The play seems less written
than merely transcribed; there’s not one false turn of phrase in it.”
- Philadelphia Enquirer

“Provocative, immediate and brilliant”
- Chicago Daily Herald

“Powerful and important”
- Chicago Free Press
