    "[Len Jenkin's Christmas Song is] elegantly written... A brief snapshot of a few lonely individuals in a boarding house, it's tender and heartfelt."

    Dan Bacalzo, Theatermania

    "What bizarre, damaging holiday rituals must have gone on in her household in childhood, or perhaps last year, to result in Holiday Movies, the giddily incongruous something-or-other that ends the program? It's sort of a play, sort of a dance, sort of music, and it's very funny."

    Neil Genzlinger, The New York Times
