Review:

In his language-drunk play LEMUEL, Lonnie Carter has drawn on everything from the spiraling patter of modernist writers Gertrude Stein and James Joyce, to the embroidered exhortations of Jesse Jackson, to the infectious rhythms of rap, hip-hop and funk.... LEMUEL is dazzling chamber theater. --Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times

The verbal and narrative gyrations of a Lonnie Carter play are no more daunting than whipping through a maelstrom on water skis.... GULLIVER, Mr Carter's latest explosion, takes the hero of Jonathan Swift's satire on a tour that makes American politics seem even more lunatic than it is. --D J R Bruckner, The New York Times

Lonnie Carter's GULLIVER TRILOGY screams and laughs like the irreverent love-child of Jonathan Swift, Joan of Arc and George Clinton. The wild maze of Carter's satiric language propels you on a wondrous journey into the confusion of dark hatreds and heavenly aspirations swirling in America's heart. As one who gleefully follows Mr Carter's travels my only advice is, enjoy the trip! --Neel Keller, Artistic Associate, La Jolla Playhouse
