Sayenko portrays the young substance abuser as sweet and a little slow... the subtlety of his performance... is both engaging and quite affecting.
Young Sayenko... is brilliant as the revolutionary Ivan. He gives an incredible performance with a strong theatrical voice. Needless to say, his accent is perfect.
Benjamin Wachs, SF Weekly
The Actors Theatre production is triumphant... Iconic moments like Stanley Kowalski (Sayenko) standing on a balcony shouting his wife's name over and over again live up to the impossible expectations half a century of performances have given us.
Charles Kruger, TheatreStorm
Sayenko, who recently appeared on the same stage in a superb performance as Stanley Kowalski in A Steetcar Named Desire, demonstrates that he is an actor of vast range. As Bobby, the young junkie who is unsure of himself, disoriented, abused and pummeled by Teach, Sayenko creates a role that is as far from the cocky Stanley as one can imagine. Sayenko manages to suggest a full street life for the young character with his extraordinarily expressive body language and always sincere interactions.
