Blindness Rave Reviews

Here is the extensive list of Blindness reviews. There are 13 reviews in total and each has a link below. We’ve used “pull quotes” (an insider term for the excerpts used for advertising) for some of the reviews. By the way, our favourite pull quote of all time for any show ever produced in Toronto is this one from The Globe and Mail theatre critic J. Kelly Nestruck: “When I spotted producer David Mirvish, I had to repress an urge to give him a hug.” It doesn’t get much more personal than that.
