"Riveting! The verdict is in: 'Twelve Angry Men,' that iconic courtroom drama, still remains compelling storytelling."

- Maryland Theatre Guide

"Spirited! A pleasingly glossy production! This production … has been buffed to a smooth professional sheen. Several standout turns, from the likes of Michael Russotto, Erik King, Christopher Bloch, Bueka Uwemedimo and Elan Zafir. The most constructively relevant aspect of 'Twelve Angry Men' remains its idealism: the conviction that our legal system is an enduring source of our strength, that it is able to withstand the most irrational and reactionary kinds of challenges to its stability."

- The Washington Post

"Timeless! Effective direction, clear vision and fine casting. 'Twelve Angry Men' is becoming America’s version of Shakespearean drama that can be molded and remolded for new generations and new audiences without losing its power to help us locate our better angels."

- DC Metro Theater Arts

"New resonance and immediacy! The current production at Ford's Theatre is an important message, a provocative reminder, and a great night of theater."

- Broadway World

"A polished and thought-provoking night at the theater!"
