“… irreverent, ambitious, risk-taking, self-aware, original-adaptation loving, off-Loop company with a style very much its own.”—Chris Jones, "
Chicago Tribune _":http://www.chicagotribune.com/entertainment/ct-ott-0210-jones-loop-20120209,0,3490594.story
“… this brand new adaptation and updating — which lasts for just a brisk 90 minutes — from Steve Moulds is fresh, insightful and a great deal of fun.” —Chicago Tribune
“The lines between reality and fiction are beautifully blurred by director Halena Kays, who stages the production across three platforms that the audience follows in swivel chairs.” —Time Out Chicago
“… when the ghoulish family enters the basement (the most paralyzing moment onstage this season), your personal space becomes violated and disturbed in the most theatrically satisfying way imaginable.” —Podunk Critic Blog
