"There are many moments of startling connection and mournful truth...Patinkin's carefully contemporized adaptation and Piven's loving attention to telling details breathe some lovely life into this challenging piece."- Kerry Reid, Chicago Tribune

"Joyce Piven’s direction, too, is masterful—a deconstructed set and a casual approach to performance (some actors are on book, or seem to be) reminding us that these people could very well be ourselves. Every actor here—and there are many—finds the humor, light or hope which is always there to undermine the devastation of our hapless hero." - Suzanne Scanlon, Time Out Chicago
