Mendelsohn's Amos Hart is nothing short of fantastic as "Mr. Cellophane."

Tumor... is a theatrical meditation on maternity and parenthood. Playwright Sheila Callaghan explores the territory in all sorts of inventive ways, the most startling of which is the character of Pete, a pregnant man.
All five actors do fine work here, especially... Mendelsohn as the surprisingly grounded Pete.

Impulse Theatre and Dance,
Mendelsohn steals the show as Harry Berlin, the disheveled suicidal neurotic.... Not only does Mendelsohn imbue his ludicrously comic character with an authentic and consistent inner life, his strong, rich voice and lanky grace as a dancer make him perfect for this demanding role. There's sweetness to the character's personality, a childlike innocence that makes Harry appealing despite his many shortcomings.
