 “…[T]he performances Yates gets from Redmon and Lamb demonstrate that Memento has a heart, and Lamb’s non-linear structure creates an emotional echo chamber. While it belongs to the often self-serving category of How My Family Got Here plays, Lamb’s take on the daunting immigrant experience could make it into something more.” Christopher Piatt, TimeOut Chicago
