LA Splash - Recommended

"...Talented, award winning playwright and actress, Barbara Tarbuck has developed a play which triggers lots of unanswered questions in most of us. STOPPING BY deals with her very personal exploration of love, illness, aging, death, and the meaning of life. With vigor and consummate skill, Barbara presents events which will involve everyone in the audience who has ever dealt with any of these troubling and often traumatic experiences. To quote the author, "It's funny getting old, like falling off the train of life... and now we must walk... we're all just stopping by, aren't we?""

Examiner - Highly Recommended

"...Barbara Tarbuck is a wonderful actress and director. She's also a great story teller which becomes immediately obvious as soon as she steps onto the stage at the Edgemar Center for the Arts in Santa Monica."

"...These are still minor druthers which, in the next incarnation of Stopping By, could be teased easily to the surface. The talents, courage, humanity, wisdom, and humor of Tarbuck are surely at all times bubbling up right there below the surface to make it so."
