"HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. This ingenious, exuberant revival of Wilder's 1942 saga is a tonic and a triumph. Brandon Bruce's 16-member cast seldom strikes a false note or misses Wilder's trenchant wisdom, treating period ballads, clever sight gags, and deft caricatures with inexhaustible high spirits." - Lawrence Bommer, Chicago Reader FULL REVIEW

"Brandon Bruce's inventive staging succeeds at walking the tightrope between absurdism and realism woven together by Wilder." - Kerry Reid, Chicago Tribune FULL REVIEW

"...BackStage's playful production emphasizes the parts of the play that remain alive. The company makes excellent use of Chopin's downstairs space; the lobby becomes an integral part of the proceedings, featuring singing muses and rousing addresses." - John Beer, Time Out Chicago FULL REVIEW

"...a sprawling, three-act show that spills out into the lobby. The casting of the central characters - the archetypal Antrobus family and their sexy maid Sabina - is spot-on, and the supporting cast giddily ups the irony to the max." - flavorpill.net
