"An A-plus character study, matched with an actor who is more than up for the challenge"
— San Francisco Chronicle
"When it comes to reminding us just why we leave our homes on a cold winter's night and seek the special joys of a live theatrical performance, playwright Stephen Belber has the big boys beat."
— Wall Street Journal
“Belber favors fast-talkers who use chitchat, digression and eloquent bluster to maneuver their way out of tricky situations. ...Like any good playwright, he is less interested in determining what's real than in exploring what makes solid fiction."
— Time Out
“Mamet is angry and has a point of view — two points of view, really — while Belber's subject is points of view.”
— Roger Ebert
