Windy City Times - Recommended

"...Even more impressive than the verbal slapstick ( ordered to stay in her room, Sophie protests, "Who am I? Anne Frank?" ) is the noteworthy progress made since the advent of "pandemic" theater-not only by performers suddenly reduced to "headshot" acting techniques, but film editors faced with creating the illusion of ensemble dynamics from a welter of stitched-together solo speeches. The cinematography of Peter Neville/Image Control Unit ascertains that the adroit Handbag cast members never waver in their focus, however, but reacts to events and utterances as if clustered in a single space, while the divas being viewed in close-up are careful to gaze past the camera lens-except for the theatrical production's Rose, whose slightly crossed eyes are part of her charm."

"...There are some very funny bits and some very sexual content . I imagine directing a number of actors who are in different locations is quite a task, but Spenser Davis pulls it off and while I know that being LIVE with the audience all together we would feel more laughter, I am impressed at the way they pulled off this first of its kind."

"...So, gather your quarantine bubble together, pour some stiff drinks and take a virtual trip to Miami. Because if you can't get to the drag queens, they will come to you."
