Published Reviews

"A wealth of sharp, invigorating, and occasionally hilarious verbal sparring over existential issues that transcend Catholicism... Audiences who want a bracing combination of laughter and deep thoughts should check out this beaming comedy."

Jimmy Fowler, Fort Worth Weekly

"It defies dogma, tackles tradition, relishes romance, laps up laughs and gives God the cheeriest face this side of George Burns."

Doug Smith, North Buffalo Rocket
