  • Published Reviews

    "Bright, zany comedies! Audiences will find a good dose of humor to make the world seem slightly friendlier."

    American Theatre Web

    "A thoroughly enjoyable evening. Funny lines, playful gags, and a few surprises."

    "It's laughter from the heart. Rich Orloff is one of the few American authors who understands European politics."
