Review quote

"Deliriously funny! Comic acting raised to the level of high art. . . . The theater erupts in booming gusts of laughter that practically shake the seats!"--The New York Times "Hugely entertaining . . . few contemporary playwrights have proven as deft as Durang as mining both the absurdity and the dangers of human folly. . . . in its own deliciously madcap way, the new work offers some keen insights into the challenges and agonies of 21st-century life."--USA Today

"We get too few comedies on Broadway, much less ones with the breezy wit and satirical bite of this one."--Time Out

"A sublime state of hilarity!"--New York Magazine

"A wild, winning ride! Hugely entertaining!"--USA Today

"Entirely, indisputably, oh-no-he-didn't Durang."--Entertainment Weekly

"The funniest show in town!"--Bloomberg

"Riotous! The kind of full-on comedy that's rare on Broadway. It makes you laugh out loud, and repeatedly at that!"--New York Post

"Nothing short of hilarious! It leaves the audience in tears of laughter!"--The Huffington Post

"Hilarious with an inspired cast!"--Variety

"One of the funniest comedies Broadway has seen in seasons."--Newsday
