Stage and Cinema- Highly Recommended
"...Every generation has its gap. Currently millennials are annoyed that baby boomers wrecked the planet and baby boomers are annoyed that millennials are, well, annoying. Add to the mix the annoying offspring who see their role as having to be the boss of an aging parent and you have the ingredients for the new play Scintilla at the Road Theater in North Hollywood."
LA Splash- Highly Recommended
"...Director Tobolowsky does a superb job of building up the tension in almost imperceptible stages as the talented cast begin to face things they have chosen to ignore for far too long. What caused the schism between mother and son which seems to fester and grow with time? What role has Michael's father played in the drama? What secrets has Stanley buried under his apparent conspiracy theories? Where does Nora fit into the family dynamic? Why has Roberto been beaten? And, finally, the biggest question of all? What is Marianne hiding?"
Stage Scene LA- Highly Recommended
"...A grown son's visit to his semi-estranged mother's woodsy abode soon turns into a matter of life or death as a raging forest fire advances in their direction in Scintilla, Alessandro Camon's gripping, suspenseful gut-puncher of a Road Theatre Company World Premiere."
Ticket Holders LA- Highly Recommended
"...Master wordsmith and Oscar-nominated screenwriter Alessandro Camon is more than a just a savvy and beguiling chronicler of the human condition. In his riveting new play Scintilla, now in its world premiere at the Road, he cunningly presents the problems of a group of everyday people to stealthily offer his take on more massive and often seemingly insurmountable global issues."
