NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:

"It’s one thing to sign a petition protesting an article that suggested a rape allegation had been a hoax, but when a friend of the Daily News columnist Mike McAlary casts aspersions on his motives as a journalist, McAlary grabs him by the lapels."

VARIETY REVIEW:

"Documentary filmmaker Dan Klores brings a cinematic eye to "The Wood," his reverential bio-dram about Mike McAlary, the muckraking NYC newspaper columnist who won a Pulitzer in 1998 for his sensational expose of police brutality against Haitian immigrant Abner Louima. Episodic and unfocused in its overlong first act, show pulls itself together in act two for some tough scenes between Louima and McAlary, who would die of cancer at 41, the year after he won his Pulitzer. The material has power, but the whole structure of the piece needs overhauling to make a real impact."

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS REVIEW:

"Mike McAlary was a Daily News columnist who exposed the shocking police torture of Haitian immigrant Abner Louima and won a Pulitzer Prize for it, all before dying of cancer on Christmas Day 1998 at age 41."

NEW YORK POST REVIEW:

"As far as subjects for a play go, Mike McAlary is a pretty great choice. In the 1990s, the big-mouthed, big-hearted tabloid journalist embodied both tough-guy reporting and the gritty Gotham he covered."

CURTAIN UP REVIEW:

"Former public relations man and documentary film maker Dan Klores began writing plays because he was tired of documentaries. Yet The Wood, isn't a departure from that genre. Klores's play about the larger than life columnist Mike McAlary is a staged instead of filmed docu-drama. Unfortunately it's also a messy and at times too maudlin one."
