"Still, the one actor who managed to pull my attention even when the lights were especially bleeping and whirring was Brian Sills, who plays another chessmaster hired by IBM to teach the computer strategy. Sills gets to throw a Method actor's meat behind the play's one genuinely round character."Slant Magazine


"Sills seems so comfortable with the role at this point that he virtually owns it, and his sense of humor has become nuanced, precise and targeted. The role requires flexibility and versatility, both of which Sills delivers with ease."Robert TrusselKansas City Star

"Overplayed to perfection!"Chicago Reader
“The real scene stealer, though, is Brian Sills' Cloten, whose every line and movement is over the top with the panache of a man who doesn't have any idea how ridiculous he is. Sills is such a fantastic actor you almost wish Cloten to be successful, just because you don't want to see him go.”
