“Reminiscent of Samuel Beckett’s bumbling philosophers in Waiting for Godot … the torrent that is KEY WEST hits the audience with a barrage of philosophical questions: Is God in every one of us? How is the thin line between ecstasy and insanity drawn? Is there life after death? What is the value of truth, and will we be haunted by our lies? And the story O’Brien weaves is entertaining. His plot drags the audience through the entire spectrum of human emotion before releasing them back into reality … [with] a shocking twist worthy of a good M Night Shyamalan reveal.” —Erin Morrison Fortunato, Rochester City Newspaper
