Reviews and Features
Holly Johnson | The Oregonian [Review 20 Jan 2015]
The laughs keep coming
“The giddy, satirical comedy is family-centered … with a dollop of magic realism thrown in.
“There’s love, personal growth and a happy ending here ... The wonderful thing about this absurdist theater is the laughs keep coming, yet the plot dances along, knowing its path.”
Patrick Brassell | BroadwayWorld.com [Review 20 Jan 2015]
The funniest play in town
“the funniest play in town … you will laugh your head off at the wild goings-on.”
