Published Reviews

"Nicholas Stoller's nicely ridiculous play-within-a-play is a hoot ... swift and funny... It's hard not to have a happy hour with this raucous group of players."

Madeleine Shaner, Back Stage West

"Nicholas Stoller's hilarious send-up of whodunits, pretentious artistes and small theater benefits from ... turbo-charged direction. At just under an hour, Stoller's swift one-act spoof demands an equally fast-paced staging..."

Sandra Ross, LA Weekly
