LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT
by Eugene O'Neill
"Ludovica Villar-Hauser’s production of “A Long Day’s Journey Into Night” in London was one of the best productions I saw that year. The pacing and control of the actors was quite exceptional and I have rarely seen a more powerful translation of Eugene O’Neill on the stage. Ms. Villar-Hauser is unmistakably an extremely powerful talent."
--Melvin Bragg, The South-Bank Show, 4th April, 1985
"… a very bold enterprise … highly praised in the national press … I shall watch her future career with great interest and high expectation."
--Sir Ian McKellen, April 30 1985
"It plays like a labor of love: respectful, scrupulous and, therefore, inevitably and cumulatively powerful… It is a tribute to the production that you sense their past and feel their future long after the curtain has fallen."
--Martin Hoyle, City Limits, April 13th 1984
"…overpowers you in a vice-like desolation and nihilism … if you go, be prepared to face up to yourself."
"the best production you are likely to see of Long Day’s Journey Into Night …"
--What’s On & Where to go
"...they (the actors) pace their performances in such a way that their predicaments become utterly mesmerizing … thanks no doubt to Ms. Villar-Hauser’s taut control. Quite simply, it must be seen."
--MD, April 1984
