“4 STARS… Several fans of the book have asked me with incredulity in recent weeks how it could possibly work onstage; the answer is, pretty impressively. Adapter Christopher M. Walsh smartly compresses the cast of characters so they can be embodied by ten versatile actors… An enjoyable potboiler with a unique twist, The City & the City is a great place to visit.” – Kris Vire, Time Out Chicago

“Bringing this cross-hatched manhunt to the stage was initially the work of adapter Christopher M. Walsh, who has distilled – or perhaps the word is processed – Miéville’s novel with a sure sense of cohesion amid the froth of complexities and the punctuation of surprises.” – Lawrence B. Johnson, Chicago on the Aisle

“Smart and richly wrought.” – Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
