Claudio Ivan Remeseira in Hispanic New York:
"Powerful play, wonderful actors, a theatrical experience that we hope can return to the stage soon. A fascinating Ana Grosse in the role of Gloria, Rodrigo Cuevas as the tortured writer, and a superb Alfredo Huereca as a comic-sinister visitor who will chase you in your nightmares."
Norberto Bogard in Pie Derecho:
"The New York (Muerte Súbita) production, presented by Bridge Playhouse, under Daniel Jáquez' direction, is able to capture all the force and violence of Berman's text in an imaginative way. In this presentation, it counts with the magnificent acting support of Alfredo Huereca, as the enigmatic and explosive Odiseo, with an effervescent Ana Grosse as Gloria, providing humorous, frivolous and sparkling nuances to the character, and with Rodrigo Cuevas as the introspective and indecisive Andrés. Muerte Súbita has found an ideal space at the small forum of The Gershwin Hotel, since it allows the action to take place very close to the audience, making them participants in a chilling way of all the violence and confusion of the characters. (...) (Muerte Súbita) is a magnificent sample of great theater (...) with a mixture of vision, rigor, commitment and professionalism (...) Muerte Súbita brings life to the stage."
Premier Solís in La Voz Hispana:
"The master Alfredo Huereca (Odiseo) is the conductor of the play. He fully absorbed his character, taking love, hatred, sadism and masochism to confabulated areas where psychopaths live (...) (Muerte Súbita) is an excellent theater production that reveals to us new experimental aspects within historic formulas. Do not miss it. It will be a positive shocking experience. I promise."
Andrés is passionately writing his third novel and refuses to leave the abandoned building where he lives with his girlfriend Gloria until it is finished. His old friend Odiseo's unexpected arrival forces them to accept that sometimes destruction is necessary before creation can begin. Muerte Súbita (Sudden Death) is a tour de force by one of Mexico's leading playwrights.
