CAST & CREW
"It's easy to put on a decent production when you have seasoned actors like Frances Sternhagen and Richard Easton working for you. But to show them at their best, as the director Eleanor Reissa does in two one-acts under the title ''Echoes of the War'' at the Mint Theater, requires a certain touch.”
– The New York Times
"…The plays shine under the astute direction of Eleanor Reissa…a resounding success."
- New York Post
"The Mint has cast lead actors who can give these semiprecious pebbles a diamond glow…in The Old Lady Shows Her Medals, something magical happens. Frances Sternhagen….steals every heart in the house, with the placid efficiency of a practiced dip lifting your wallet. The magic lies in her never seeming to do anything at all – you won’t know your heart’s gone till you feel the ache she’s left in its place. Director Eleanor Reissa’s staging…is utterly sure. "
