According to the Chorus

"Director Emily Chase makes fantastic use of her space,  considering that at times there are nine or ten performers on the stage... moving her actors almost nonstop while never distracting from the forward movement of the story. The pathos in the script is realized in breezy, colorful ways with a streak of melancholy marbled throughout."

BROADWAY WORLD

"Wow! As deliciously entertaining an evening as anyone could wish for, directed by Emily Chase with attention to both character and detail."

STAGESCENE LA

"There are rivals and jealousy and spite, wringing hands and wrung necks, joyful reunions and a depth of being known... but under it all, there is always love. Hard-fought love of course, in this gorgeously funny, sad, poignant, phenomenally acted and fabulously directed play. Bravo, Emily Chase!"

STAGESCENE LA

"Director Emily Chase does a masterful job making this all work seamlessly, particularly conquering the many scene changes here carried out by members of the ensemble in character, with delicately choreographed movements between them featured downstage as one actor takes over the role of another."
