Chicago Tribune- Somewhat Recommended

"...It’s an enjoyable show, and fans of Dudzick’s earlier work probably won’t be disappointed. But “Miracle on South Division Street” strikes a decidedly minor key."

Daily Herald- Somewhat Recommended

"...director Steve Scott's production is pleasant and well-paced. It boasts affable cast members whose nicely understated comic flair suits the material. Hurley's Clara and the banter and the physical exchanges between DuFloth's Jimmy and Walker's Beverly feel especially authentic."

Chicago On Stage- Recommended

"...Scott’s direction keeps these characters fully invested at all times, and his brisk pacing brings the show in at under an hour and a half despite a very unfortunate scene change Dudzick sticks him with at the eleventh hour. He also succeeds in keeping the comic aspects of the play firmly in the forefront when it would be fairly easy for the revealed secrets to derail them. You might find Miracle on South Division Street a bit contrived, but you will also find it pleasantly funny. It may not be the most compelling play in the world, but these actors and this director make the Nowaks worth visiting, even if you have to travel all the way out to College of DuPage to do so."
