Reviews

"I haven’t read this play, but I imagine the most frequent stage direction is: “Mayhem ensues.” And it does, especially when Lynn’s fight choreography takes over the second act for a spectacular and hilarious battle."

 

Philadelphia Inquirer

"Eli Lynn supplies elegant and expressive fight choreography."

- Broad Street Review

" ... no small light could ever outshine what this cast has illuminated."
