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

All four actors are superb. — Timeout Chicago
