Editorial Reviews

New Yorker
The laughter is all but continuous.
NY Times
Funny. Observant. A play with wit as well as acumen...In dealing with social and cultural paradoxes, Ms. Wasserstein is, as always, the most astute of commentators.
NY Post
This is a simply lovely, funny play, and such family values benefit from small revelations.
