- Watching a David Mamet play isn't a passive experience. Virtually every word of dialogue pushes, provokes, entices, frustrates, and stimulates his audience. And his two-character 1992 play, Oleanna...is the epitome of the writer's art. – Ann Lieber, TheaterMania
- Since its 1992 Off-Broadway premiere, Oleanna has done what theatre does best: spawn debate. – Adam Hetrick, Playbill
- Pullman says that he is looking forward to seeing the show open on Broadway. Playing an academic who finds himself in trouble with accusations of sexual misconduct, Pullman says that seeing Oleanna is almost like going to a sporting event. – Broadway.TV
