"Constellation's production of The Green Bird takes flight ... because of the nimbleness of its surprisingly high-caliber acting ensemble..."          Read full review


The Washington Post, 5/12/2011, on The Green Bird

"The stylized movement contributes to the show’s artful exoticism, which reaches its peak in moments when motion and design synchronize to create magical transformations and epiphanies. ... Largely driven by greed, pride and hardheartedness ('Poetry is its own reward, but so is money!' the conniving versifier Brighella — portrayed by Graham Pilato — observes), the buffoonish characters ultimately learn the value of virtue, while social reversals yield to hierarchy and traditional family bonds."             Read full review

The Baltimore Sun, 2/18/2011, on Beyond Therapy

"Graham Pilato is convincing as desperate, confused Bruce, who has notable chemistry with Spears' Prudence and a caring concern for his male lover, Bob. Pilato's Bruce is equally skilled in relating to his therapist, Wallace, helping decipher her tangled phrases"             Read full review

"The most compelling action comes to circulate around the interplay between Victor (Graham Pilato)—who deserves additional props for a fine drunken drawl—and Bradley (Keith Waters), plagued throughout the play by a crustacean-sized sore in his nether-regions. Initially painted as the sincere puppy in the dog pen, Victor’s writerly obligations—to comely Brenda, to the necessity of working through some Freudian family issues—are shaken as Bradley insinuates that success, in Hollywood, comes at the price of integrity. Sounds clichéd, yes? Fair enough, but the superbly acted dialogue between the two that ends the show manages to leave a central question unanswered."       Read full review

The Baltimore City Paper, 1/28/09, on The Homecoming

"Pilato delivers his role as the younger brother Joey, a wannabe boxer who is a construction worker during the day, with affecting delicacy, especially as he starts to fall in love."            Read full review
