One of the best
- TimeOut Chicago and New City
"...one of the best off-Loop productions of the year... Rarely are fringe productions this sure-footed... Directed with a firm grasp of tone by Vance Smith"
-- Nina Metz, Chicago Tribune
"Even small gestures speak volumes in Vance Smith's attentive staging"
--Jenn Goddu, Chicago Reader
"... what really put this show over the top was a knockout cast and the near-perfect staging by the brand new Black Sheep Productions (with director Vance Smith at the helm)"
-NewCity, Best of 2007
"thanks to the cast of everyday all-stars assembled by director Vance Smith... the ensemble took Spencer's fastball script and knocked it out of the park."
"..pungent, explosive, dark little comedy, and it’s rather brilliantly performed by a veteran crew for the new Black Sheep Productions. Pumped up by Vance Smith’s astute yet brassy direction, Kevin Stark turns in an astonishingly hyper-energized performance as Jack."
--Jonathan Abarbanel, Windy City Times
