Washington Roebling seemed to be one of the most effectively conflicted characters I’ve seen on stage in a long time…Bravo to the cast and to Actors’ NET for uncovering this gem of a play.

-James R. / Audience Member, 2009

These are well-researched characters, with the foundation of compelling characterizations, particularly for brave, intelligent Emily.

-Theater Resources Unlimited / NYC

It is a wonderful production and clearly up to the standards my wife and I have come to enjoy from Actors’ NET over the years.

-Leonard C. / Audience Member, 2009

"Standing O" to playwright Mark Violi, director Ruth Markoe and the cast, who presented “Roebling: The Story of the Brooklyn Bridge”…It was one of the best performances I have ever seen.

-Rita C. / Times of Trenton Letter to the Editor

The story remains compelling.
