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.”
