LA Splash - Highly Recommended

"...John Iacovelli's flexible scenic design allows for quick changes of scene, while Dianne's K. Graebner's costume design keeps reminding us that this is, after all, the late 1940's. Brian Gale's lighting and Peter Bayne's sound add to the overall ambience, with original music keeping the joint hopping. MEXICAN DAY pokes fun at a very grave topic - and proves highly effective in setting just the right note of sincerity crippled by singlemindedness. This a thought-provoking and powerful play which asks some important questions about belief systems - how they develop and how to change them."

Stage Scene LA - Highly Recommended

"...Following the hallucinogenic surrealism of Plunge and the real-time fireworks of Tar, playwright Tom Jacobson concludes his mammoth Bimini Bath Trilogy with no less than an old-fashioned 1940s-style screwball comedy (with dramatic overtones) called Mexican Day, like its predecessors an enthralling, enlightening look at 20th-century L.A. history."

On Stage Los Angeles - Highly Recommended

"...Excellent ensemble acting abounds with each of the four players coming around as other characters whom the audience readily accepts. Notable is Larson's Irish Swedish cop!"

Stage Raw - Not Recommended

"...Nor does director Jeff Liu's staging alleviate the play's inherent problems. He has paced the piece so that all the issues are given equal weight, with no dramatic demarcation between them, so we have no chance to digest each theme. As for the performances, Liu has failed to extract the fully committed passion from his cast demanded by the weighty subject matter. A great deal of the work seems to be superficial."

Haines His Way - Recommended

"...d he has a past history with Zenobio that has left both men broken. Jacobson skillfully weaves all the various story threads into a moving piece of theatre, skillfully enacted by the quartet of actors under the deft direction of Jeff Liu. John Iacovelli designed the bathhouse setting complete with two turntables that easily transform to the various locales."
