"...HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Excellent new production of Joseph Heller's indispensable combat satire Catch-22 moves too swiftly to condescend and trusts its audience to keep up. Although Heller's stage adaptation of his own novel lends itself to comparisons with Iraq, Brandon Bruce's staging neatly sidesteps the quagmire by focusing on the story at hand, which is a doozie." - Christopher Piatt, Chicago Sun-Times FULL REVIEW

"CRITIC'S PICK. There's more than enough style, shrewdness, zest and sheer theatrical panache on display in the Signal Ensemble Theatre's hyper-kinetic revival of Joseph Heller's Catch-22 to suggest this young and emerging theater company has a bright future." - Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune

"The play can be amusing. Especially if the folks performing it are as adept as the Signal Ensemble at switching gracefully from comedy to drama and back again. This nimbleness is all the more impressive given that most of the actors play three or four characters." - Jack Helbig, Chicago Reader FULL REVIEW

"You'll be hard pressed to see a funnier ensemble." - Tom Williams, chicagocritic.com FULL REVIEW
