Review Roundup: Broadway-Bound AIRLINE HIGHWAYReview Roundup: Broadway-Bound AIRLINE HIGHWAY
by Review Roundups (Chicago)

(12/15/2014) - very few playwrights have the acute sense of American place you find in D'Amour's beautiful writing. Especially toward the end, 'Airline Highway' is a worthy follow-up to the similarly adroit 'Detroit,' a Pulitzer Prize finalist about another great city ridden and then mostly abandoned by the country at large. These are both moralistic plays (with similar codas) suggesting we pay more attention to the beautiful urban gardens between sea and shining sea, very much dimmed by human tears.
