"What struck me so vitally was that this is a play of the now, sparked by the direction of David Lipschutz, and written with intuitive modernity by Stephen Karam… even though it opened Off-Broadway in 2007. Brown Paper Box Company has a history of finding gems in the theater of the last generation and reviving them for Chicago audiences." - Patrick McDonald, Hollywood Chicago.
"[D]irector David Lipshutz managed the black-box style transitions seamlessly..." - Jacob Davis, Chicago Critic.
