  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF Heartless

    All the Discomforts of Home

    Ben Brantley

    August 28, 2012: Deep in the second act of “Heartless,” the murky new play by Sam Shepard, a luminous lunacy lights up the stage. It is generated by Lois Smith and Jenny Bacon, playing a mother and daughter who thus far haven’t had much to say to each other and wouldn’t even appear to have much in common, aside from that inconvenient matter of being related. But just listen to them now.

    Sam Shepard's EKG on the Human Condition

    Wilborn Hampton

    August 28, 2012: The heart has always been a vital organ in the plays of Sam Shepard, and never more so than in Heartless, a poetic, enigmatic and often humorous exploration of the human failure to connect with one another that is the playwright's most inspired and imaginative work in years. It is being staged with mostly excellent results at the new Signature Theater complex.

    Heartless

    Marilyn Stasio

    August 28, 2012: After a lifetime of writing fierce plays about fathers and sons, scribe Sam Shepard has written a not-so-fierce play about a mother (played by the indomitable Lois Smith) and her unhappy brood of daughters. The central character of "Heartless" is a 65-year-old man who walked away from his wife and children and into a relationship with a woman half his age. But despite his glib tongue and sexual magnetism, this rolling stone is ultimately out-talked and out-maneuvered by Shepard's women.

    August 28, 2012: "I’d like to gaze out into the abyss for a while," declares a wacko wheelchair-bound mother in "Heartless."

    Heartless

    Keith Staskiewicz

    August 28, 2012: There are skeletons in the closet, under the bed, and behind the couch in Heartless, Sam Shepard's ethereal and discomfiting new play set in a Los Angeles house haunted by five lost souls.
