Quotes & Highlights

This kind of no-holds-barred affair is right in the Profiles Theatre wheelhouse, and it’s red meat for young Chicago actors … all of whom jump into this assignment with their eyes blazing, mouths moving and feathers flying, unleashed no doubt by a director who opened the doors of their cages wide. — Chicago Tribune
Mr. Cox’s must-see production about deciding to decide is sharp, sexy, surprisingly funny and simply breathtaking. — Centerstage
The actors, whose nerve endings are almost visible, are unremittingly riveting. The design team, most notably Katie-Bell Springmann’s award-worthy set, is tops. — Chicago Sun-Times
All four actors are superb. — Timeout Chicago
