“This lovingly rendered one-man production is a scrumptious basket of vivid details that sings out with clarion truth. These street walkers, bag men, and tramps are embodied with exacting detail in the kind of star turn that old school actors and worshippers of the craft dream about.” Broadway World
“Galinsky is a theatre operative, impresario, and a bundle of energy and curly black hair.” The Wall Street Journal
“Galinsky effortlessly assumes the bodies and voices of his characters, instantly transforming from one to the next from monologue to dialogue — it is really quite extraordinary.
All that’s really called for is a bench. Other than that, Galinsky doesn’t need any help.”Backstage Magazine
“‘Galinsky’s street dwellers speak in their own voices, and their voices ring true.”The New Haven Independent
“Galinsky is manic, deadpan, and takes aim with psychotic precision.” High Times Magazine
“Galinsky…downtown poet priest.”New York Observer
“Director Jay O. Sanders has built a career on roles that are inseparable from the worlds that spawned them; that same sensibility is certain to be in evidence on The Bench.”
