“The evening is, at worst, solid theatre craftsmanship. At best, it is enchantment. These five works have been acted and directed with more care for dramatic truth than one usually finds in a full-scale theatrical presentation. … Each of the Pivens has a grand star turn…the roles are perfectly picked for their distinctive gifts, giving Joyce full opportunity for her feathery touch and providing Byrne the chance to rumble richly with his velvet voice. The highlight of this lovely evening is Chekhov’s THE TRICK…this simple story is a pure, absolutely exquisite distillation of the sweetness and pain of first love.” – Richard Christiansen, Chicago Tribune
