"This rarely produced gem is a door-slamming farce wrapped inside a humanist attack on the Soviet regime... As comedies about mortality go, this one is rather joyful."
Jason Zinoman, The New York Times
"So, if The Seagull, ending in its main character's tragic suicide, is a Russian comedy, then what is a Russian farce? Well, equally as suicidal, but unrelentingly wacky. ...Robert Ross Parker's slam-dunk adaptation of Nikolai Erdman's banned 1928 Communist-era play The Suicide, is a boisterous rebel of a comedy with a deceptively masked, pointed intellect."
"What begins as an interesting look at a dated play grows, over the course of the show, into an engrossing and often hilarious piece of theater."

"This fable of an Everyman in trouble is both informative and riotously entertaining... Goodbye is filled with touching depictions of what happens to the human spirit when a utopian dream becomes a totalitarian nightmare."
Ethan Kanfer, Show Business Weekly
"If you think thought-provoking theatre that's literally about important issues like life and death, economics, politics, and the social contract can't be wildly entertaining, well, here's Robert Ross Parker to prove you wrong."
