Press for The Material World
The Material World is the best downtown musical I have seen in years. …I have never seen anything quite like it. Fishback’s musical richly deserves a life after the HOT! Festival has gone to ashes. Strident yet diffident, nervous yet sure, The Material World feels, in its own way, quietly revolutionary.
-Time Out NY (Top 10 Plays of 2012)
In a better, smarter world, perhaps, thoughtful musicals like this one would be on Broadway instead of Spider-Man
-The Village Voice
The best musical I’ve seen in a long time.
–Scott Wittman (lyricist, “Hairspray,” “Smash”)
The Material World is unmissable. Fishback's songs and book are superb.
The best new musical I have seen come from downtown in a decade, maybe longer.
