NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:

"Human life is measured in inhuman ways in “When I Come to Die,” a sober, meticulously wrought drama by Nathan Louis Jackson set on death row in an Indiana prison. The coming of dawn brings no birdsong, or even the comforting blare of city horns. Time is measured by the clanging of cell doors and the mechanical blinking on and off of fluorescent lights. Each day brings the same cold routine, the same blank night. "

TIME OUT NEW YORK REVIEW:

"“Freaked me out for sure,” marvels Roach (David Patrick Kelly), speaking to his cell-block neighbor, Damon (Chris Chalk), who inexplicably survives lethal injection. “Seeing you walk back in here was like looking at a ghost.” Damon glumly responds, “Imagine how the ghost feels.” Playwright Nathan Louis Jackson has imagined just that in his sympathetic and expertly crafted character study, When I Come to Die. Avoiding a position on the morality of capital punishment, Jackson focuses on the toll waiting to die takes on the mind, finding both despair and grim humor in the condemned Damon’s short reprieve."

NEW YORK POST REVIEW:

"Death-row dramas have been a theatrical staple since the '30s, and "When I Come To Die," Nathan Louis Jackson's new take, adds little that's fresh. Damon Robinson (Chris Chalk), in prison for 10 years, has somehow survived an attempt to dispatch him by lethal injection. Now, the man dubbed "the Marion County Miracle" awaits word on whether the state will try again."

ASSOCIATED PRESS REVIEW:

"Damon Robinson is literally a dead man walking in the play "When I Come to Die." An inmate on death row in Indiana, he has been returned to his cell after somehow surviving the three-drug cocktail that was supposed to stop his heart. He should be dead."

BACKSTAGE REVIEW:

"Death row is a familiar setting where, in many a melodramatic movie, TV show, and play, a condemned prisoner achieves a hokey epiphany on the eve of his or her execution. Fortunately, Nathan Louis Jackson's "When I Come to Die," the latest new work in Lincoln Center Theater's LCT3 series, handily avoids tear-jerking clichés in its clear-eyed depiction of a condemned man coming to terms with his imminent demise."
