Reviews for 2015’s “The Egg Progect”:

“hilarious… Amato’s script is quite brilliant. His dialogue is crisp and smart… This play certainly has the potential to move beyond this festival so check it out before you have to pay off-Broadway prices to see it.” NY Theater Now

“A magnificent blend of both things familiar and things strange…an extraordinarily well-written piece… Simply put, The Egg Progect is a delight.”  TheatreIsEasy “Best of FringeNYC 2015″
