MARY MALLORY ON MAY 22, 2015THEATRE REVIEWS –  Thoughtful, well acted, and entertaining, Art Shulman’s play Doubting Thomas reveals the importance of belonging and being accepted. It examines what it means to be family and the importance of relationships to life. The play also questions materialism over connecting.

 

CORINA ROBERTS, PATCH.COM – Four actors, two locations, and a set that never changes. Playwright and actor Art Shulman brings a drama to this sparing stage that challenges our notions of just about everything. Doubting Thomas is the latest of Art Shulman’s creations. A master of subtle suspense, Shulman is in his element as a main character in the tightly written play
