"This production gets its strength from director Jim Warren’s unfailing ability to find the people who are all but hidden under the contrivance."
"Gregory Jon Phelps makes the two faces of Marlow’s character fit so well together that watching him is like seeing both sides of a coin at the same time. I left the theater thinking that there must be a name for guys who long for an appropriate partner but don’t believe they deserve one, so they soothe themselves with people who have no real business in their lives."
"John Harrell, who plays Tony Lumpkin, tavern denizen and spoiled apple of his mother’s eye, somehow makes waiting for your trust fund to mature seem like a burden no one should be asked to bear without a drink, or several drinks, and a couple of dirty songs."
