Editorial Reviews

NY Post
...Marber—with his suggestions about life and, especially, fatherhood—plays out his dramatic hand with compelling skill, and DEALER'S CHOICE strikes me as a straight flush.
Time Out
...make tracks to DEALER'S CHOICE, Patrick Marber's wonderfully masculine, razor-sharp dissection of poker as life...It's a play that comes out swinging and never lets up—a witty, wisecracking drama that relentlessly probes the tortured souls of its six very distinctive...characters. CHOICE is a cutthroat pleasure that you won't want to miss.
Variety
Playwright Patrick Marber...plays his hand with the skill of a Vegas pro. DEALER'S CHOICE...is a neat...comic drama that gives its talented players ample opportunity to outbid one another.
