"CRITIC'S CHOICE...A ferocious mix of hilarity and horror, the play boils with religious and sexual satire, loony wordplay, and feverish energy. The BackStage Theatre Company's full-throttle production, directed by Brandon Bruce, features a commanding, highly physical performance by Stephen Dunn in the daunting role of Jack, aided by a confident supporting cast and Heath Hays's inventive sound design."
- Albert Williams, Chicago Reader
"Bruce directs with a surrealism that illuminates the unstable protagonist's unhinged state of mind, enhanced by the use of masks and musical numbers...this is a gripping, amusing and ultimately haunting piece of theater." - Rory Leahy, Centerstage.net FULL REVIEW
"...Bruce, who has an exceptional aesthetic vision and ambition, demonstrates again he's a director worth watching. Bruce has a tight kung-fu grip on the script's absurdist tone and uniformly keeps his cast held in that bizarro grasp. " - Novid Parsi, Time Out Chicago
