“Theatre In The Park’s IT IS DONE is a truly satisfying Halloween treat… the whole thing runs to a stunner of a conclusion, leaving us with a very satisfying little bombshell in a short time… these three ensemble actors do a technically flawless and always-interesting dance that leads to a very satisfying, very Halloween conclusion.” Alan R. Hall – Classical Voice of North Carolina
“Theatre In The Park’s IT IS DONE serves up a spooky tale along with fine performances… it revs up to a gripping albeit sinister climax that will keep some audiences on the edge of their seats.” Lauren Van Hemert – Broadway World
“Filled with Hawthorne-esque atmosphere and delivery, this creepy show is the perfect play to keep you up all night. Different, unique and subtly evocative, IT IS DONE is a definite must-see this Halloween season.” Susie Potter – Triangle Arts Review.
“A horror-show version of Three Card Monte… Goldberg’s Twilight Zone scripting and repartee makes us wonder long enough just who’s the cat and who’s the mouse in this chilly little trio about unpaid spiritual debts and the high price of collections.” Byron Woods – The Indy
