Chicago Reader - Highly Recommended

"...the ensemble that director Seth Remington has gathered perform with such verve and intelligence they make even the more manipulative moments in Simon's carefully polished tale seem fresh and real. Richard Leo Madison is especially winning as Simon's barely fictionalized stand-in, Eugene."

ChicagoCritic - Recommended

"...RiMeChi Theatre Company has mounted a worthy production of Neil Simon’s autobiographical comedic drama, Biloxi Blues. The story revolves around Eugene Morris Jerome (Richard Leo Madison) ---echo of Neil Simon—as he is inducted into the U.S. Army in 1943 for World War II."
