Quotes & Highlights

“plenty of moments of humor … the success of the Stage Guild production lies in its straightforward presentation of an often brilliant text, and its strong cast … a production so good you’d wish there was more Eliot they could put on.” —MD Theatre Guide
“sparkling banter along the way, in verse that’s light, conversational, and often—as when rest-home matron Lynn Steinmetz positively bellows ‘peace and quiet is our raison d’etre’”—pretty funny in Bill Largess’ nimble mounting.” —City Paper
