"...The tech side, as always, at Citadel, is near-perfection. Director Mark E. Lococo knows how to use the stage and part of the audience section to make sure the flow of the play works well for the audience and Stage Manager Samantha Tink makes sure that the scenes flow quickly and with no noise. The lighting (Emma Magrady) and sound (Bob Boxer) work to perfection and Ales Weinzieri’s costumes are very fitting. The props assemble by Jamie Karas add to the realism of the production. All in all, this is one that shows why Citadel is getting ready to head into their 15th season with an almost filled house on a cool Thursday night in Lake Forest."

"...Christopher Durang's Tony Award-winning play is a perfect entertainment for a warm, Spring evening. While not nearly as absurd as most of his earlier works, this play is the product of an older, wiser, more mellow playwright, for whom life continually inspires new ideas worth sharing. It's lighthearted and brimming with bizarre characters and unexpected humor, yet it speaks volumes about aging, love, global warming and the way technology has taken our lives hostage. Durang's play rolls with the continual ebb and flow of life's drama and comedy. And while this isn't exactly Chekhov, its exploration of the same themes, albeit with a contemporary hand, is just as rewarding. Mark E. Lococo's production concludes one of Citadel's finest seasons, making this theatre company one of Chicagoland's most reliable entertainment choices."
