“Under the direction of Joan Kane, the play is staged wonderfully and leaves the audience engaged throughout all the humorous moments of the play, as well as the more emotional ones.” Anthony J. Piccione, On Stage Blog, March 17, 2018

“As the truth is slowly revealed, we see characters struggling to hold in more information than they care to share. All of this is a triumph for director Joan Kane.” Ed Malin in Theater in the Now, March 15, 2018
