"Run to see this play... The actors, dialogue, set, and costumes, all come together to deliver a wonderful theater experience without politics, political correctness or posturing." - Ronni Burns, Electric Link Jounal
"When all five actors are romping about on stage, they reach their peak laughter from the audience. Think: Neil Simon meets Lucille Ball." - Elyse Orecchio, Theatre's Leiter Side
"The production is entertaining... Heather E. Cunningham is excellent with both the quick comeback and the humble demeanor.. Robert Franklin Neill is suave and sophisticated... Meghan E. Jones is very amusing... The beautiful blue and white living room cum office setting is the work of Jack and Rebecca Cunningham which is period perfect even to showing the view of the apartment buildings across the street. The troupe l'oeil walls are quite amusing and an architectural feat. The lighting by Asa Lipton has the warm brightness of a cozy room you enjoy visiting." - Victor Gluck, Theatrescene.net
"Although initial focus falls on a bumbling Bob, played with verve and earnestness by Chris Harcum, the story quickly pins all our love and attention on a wise-cracking, guns-blazing Mary. Artistic Director and star Heather E. Cunningham's Mary is infused with equal-parts vivacity and heartbreak, highlighting the pain and insecurities she endured as a child and a bride, while also displaying her unflappable wit and intelligence in the face of personal and emotional struggle." - Natalie Rine, Onstageblog.com
"Set design by Jack and Rebecca Cunningham is spot on for the period, giving director Shay Gines an excellent landscape on which to stage the actors. Costumes by Ben Philipp are also well-thought out and in alignment with the characters." - Christopher Can, Manhattan Digest
"Sterling talent... Lovely sets, costumes, and acting" - Mark Savitt, 6 Second Review
"The set, by Jack and Rebecca Cunningham, is brilliant... Heather E. Cunningham is sensational... Robert Franklin Neill slayed me as Dirk..." - Abigail Weill, The Theatre Times
