“Every few years, a scrappy, artistically ambitious company bursts onto the scene with a skewed but surprisingly coherent new aesthetic that displays a kind of chemistry hardly ever seen uptown. The Amoralists cements its reputation as the most promising, crowd-pleasing ensemble to emerge downtown.”

New York Times

“Like good punk rock, The Amoralists come on strong; they’re hard, fast and loud.”


“For the critics and audiences who have fallen hard for The Amoralists’ sprawling, knockabout style, the news is good. Nobody else weds old-fashioned realist structure to working-class-hero lunacy quite this way, and no other acting collective seems so raw, so heartfelt, so exuberantly extreme onstage and off.”

Time Out New York

“One of these days, The Amoralists are going to get arrested.”


“The Amoralists’ shows are like no other. A distinctive mix of hyper-realism, satire, brash violence and unexpected tenderness.”

New York Post

“The Amoralists’ sprawling blend of empathy and anarchy has earned it a white-hot reputation among downtown tastemakers.”

“My gut is that part of the future of American theatre rests with these guys, which is why I keep coming back to see what they’re cooking up.”
