Byhalia, Mississippi- Reviews are in

"...when the play you are watching can make you think, then laugh, then gasp, then cry, then laugh, then think some more – well, that’ s just about the best night of theater there is. Byhalia, Mississippi, currently playing at Carnegie Stage, provides just such

a night of great theater. PGH in the Round

Byhalia, Mississippi shines at off the WALL

There’s a lot to love about Byhalia, but up top is the way the script navigates racial, class and economic tensions without sacrificing the substance of the characters or the story. It’s not about those things, but the story recognizes how those “big ideas” wiggle their way into the lives of Americans in both subtle and explosive ways. It’s a fine line to walk, but this production and these five magnetic actors handle the challenge brilliantly. Go see it. Pittsburgh City Paper
