Asheville Citizen Times:
“Someone Else” sizzles with sensuousness and sexy dialogue — a witty and wise romp … great depth and substance … represents everywoman and everyman’s struggle — the human condition made manifest.”
“New York based director Markus Potter brings this world premiere to a fine conclusion as he’d done in a previous first staging at NC Stage a couple years ago. His “Stalking the Bogeyman” went on to be an off-Broadway NY Times Critics Pick and an Outer Circle Critics Award nomination. Potter’s track record here is good and he’d be welcomed back.”
Carolina Curtain Call:
“This charming and piquant world with blistering frankness, big laughs, and range of emotional dichotomies will resonate with audiences”
“In addition to the primed performances, NC Stage Company has solicited some incredible talent for this staging lead by the invisible touch of director Markus Potter. He helmed the company’s “Stalking The Bogeyman” in 2013 and the show ran Off-Broadway to much fanfare by New York critics. His gentle hand in “Someone Else” is unobtrusive, but fluid and flanked with laser-focused flair.
“Markus Potter makes a return to N.C. Stage where he premiered his 2013 production of Stalking the Boogeyman before taking the show to New York. He directs a tightly paced performance that inhabits the stage like a restless caged animal bidding its time, waiting for an escape that is likely to never come. There are no breaks between scenes, as lights shift and actors move, often changing wardrobe in front of the audience during the transitions. This keeps the audience intimately involved with the characters and story, even in moments that normally would not be shown to the audience. But this show is all about exposing inner fears and demons and debating them in often-unsettling ways.”
