  • Critical response

    Head Critic for The New York Times, Ben Brantley stated:[1]
    “Tasty, bite-sized comedies. Nimbly directed by Neil Pepe. Theatergoers nostalgic for the urbane, mind-teasing divertissements that once flourished Off-Broadway should leave happily hungry. A dream team.”

    Melissa Rose Bernardo from Entertainment Weekly stated:[2]
    “Boisterous and fun [...] Coen couldn’t ask for a better production than this Atlantic Theater Company treatment.”

    Linda Winer from Newsday Stated:[3]
    “Gleeful, thoughtful and darkly loopy. These new, lean pieces mark the serious stage debut of a shrewd and weirdly endearing comic voice.”
