"Cutting Ball's production of Roberto Zucco, by the French playwright Bernard-Marie Koltès, has a keen sense of atmosphere: a foggy night outside a Paris prison, when the murderer Roberto Zucco escapes; the gloomy, green-lit Métro stop where he meets one of his nervous victims; the sun-shot morning when Zucco walks out on the prison roof and stands above a crowd of onlookers like a Nietzschean Übermensch."

-Michael Scott Moore
