Published Reviews

"It's engagingly funny and then unexpectedly affecting."

Robert Hurwitt, San Francisco Chronicle

"In one year of reviewing Portland's theater scene, I've never been as captivated as I was by Mark Setlock's one-man interpretation of It's a Wonderful Life."

Johanna Droubay, Willamette Week

"Like the film that inspired it, it quietly celebrates a simple truth: Little things mean more than we know."

Louise Kennedy, The Boston Globe

"...this season, for something a little different, try Mark Setlock and Steve Murray's take on the classic, heartfelt story of regrets and blessings."

Ann Miner, TalkinBroadway.com

"While the play largely sticks to the bones of the movie, there are moments when Murray's voice comes through loud and clear. His insistence that we see 'Wonderful' as more than a Christmas story, that we see it as metaphor for the nobility of the average hardworking American, packs a punch as heady as any egg nog."

Karen D'Souza, Mercury News
