"Sander is Kick Ass. No other way to describe him....What he’s leaving behind is a one of a kind body of work, a lot of affection, and the imprint of his energy and originality."
—Todd London, Artistic Director, New Dramatists
From remarks upon Hicks' graduation from New Dramatists
"His works deal almost always with problems of the
overeducated and underemployed, of philosophies
not quite elastic enough to make sense in the postmodern
world, and of the role of responsibility in a nation
whose morality is increasingly becoming a matter
Eric Zass, Kyezine
"Sander's theater and publishing efforts bespeak
an elegant self-empowerment and energy"
Allen Ginsberg, 1993
"Hicks' unflinching expression undoubtedly makes
some people uncomfortable. But it also inspires
laughter and discussion that is worth the discomfort
and deserving of a wider audience."
Jason Kelly, South Bend Tribune
The Critics on Hicks' last play The Breaking
"In his play The Breaking Light, Sander
Hicks describes the emergence of ideological crisis...embodied
in the terms by which our current politics are wrought:
boardroom bragadoccio, cutthroat rivalries, cynical
marketing strategies and demagogic self-help rituals."
Douglas Manson, Buffalo New York, from introductory
"The Breaking Light Sander Hicks' dark-as-night
satire knowingly skewers corporate avarice. The
workers do indeed rise up, but Hicks wisely resists
the temptation to pretty up the carnage."
Ross, LA Weekly
"The Breaking Light, 'is silly, refreshing
and very clever. It hops like its author from thought
to thought, but with a logical, tongue-in-cheek
foundation. Hicks himself is critical of the play,
writing in an email that it is a 'sprawling chaotic
machine. It tries to think all the thoughts at once.'"
