Topical and spooky. Christina Anderson is a talented newcomer who’s unafraid to take risks. Direction by Kate Whoriskey is excellent. Tony-winner LaChanze is gutsy.—Joe Dziemianowicz, Daily News
A Deeply Moving drama with a Sterling Cast. Christina Anderson is a gifted playwright you want to pay attention to. She has the voice of a poet, and the honesty of her voice and the integrity of her characters should stand her in good stead.—Marilyn Stasio, Variety
FOUR STARS. First-rate writing and consistently solid acting. It’s clear from the opening scene that the play’s young author has a great deal of promise.—Adam Feldman, Time Out NY
