The Mousetrap 

 at Cape Playhouse 

 by Agatha Christie / dir. Pamela Hunt 

Roger Shoemaker, Cape Cod Times:

"Each actor has wonderful character moments ... [including] the impetuous, slightly crazed boy/man who uses the pseudonym Christopher Wren (played for laughs and pathos by Jay Ben Markson)."

Barbara Clark, The Barnstable Patriot:

"One and all, the Playhouse cast breathes life and fun into this long-running bit of mischief, giving a fresh kick to the lines and distinct twists to each character. Of note [is] Jay Ben Markson, who adds plenty of hyper fun and nervy humor as Christopher..."

Kristen Morale, BroadWayWorld Boston:

"This production is just plain awesome...watching these actors bring this plot to life so flawlessly really reinstates one's faith in theater."

Don Aucoin, The Boston Globe:

"...the scenes of bonding between Margaret and Fin are among the play's most memorable."

Kate Lew Idlebrook, New England Theatre Geek:

"Markson's bristly, guarded teen is spot on. His attitude is breached only by his boyish need for authentic connection."

Nancy Grossman, BroadWayWorld Boston:

"Markson infuses a jolt of wry commentary and youthful energy, not to mention a large helping of adolescent eye-rolling."
