“SINGER & HIS DEMONS adds another chapter to Chicago’s rich story-theater history…Byrne Piven’s staging shows the skillful and confident hand of a theatre veteran…the pieces interlock in subtle ways, building a mood of apprehension and wonderment…an appropriate tribute to a gifted author.” – Lon Grahnke, Chicago Sun-Times

“Puckish creatures tell lies for the sheer joy of it, seduce women just to anger their husbands and generally perpetrate mayhem among the mortals. All of which lends itself vividly to the stage in this series of fully produced Singer stories that bring the pesky little devils to life.” – Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune
