“James Monaco is a storyteller in the classic sense: a magician, a trickster, and a truth teller. Somewhere between This American Life and the Arabian Nights, he weaves intimate tales with music and sound in the varied traditions of Sherwood Anderson, Kevin Kling, Mississippi John Hurt, and Laurie Anderson. And he does so with humour and heart. An invaluable emerging performer.”
-Rachel Chavkin, Obie-winning director (The TEAM, NYTW’s Three Pianos)

“James Monaco actually creates a whole new talent, one that is visceral and mesmerizing and beautifully crafted and dangerously improvisational, all at once... A truly unique voice is one in a million. What he does is even rarer.”
 -Randall Klein, Associate Editor, Random House Publishing Group

“James Monaco, a writer for whom I have deep respect, is inventing a new form of theatre involving his monologues, his body, and his heart. It is impossible not to fall in love with his characters and with him.”
-Michael Krass, Tony-nominated designer
