Published Reviews

"A fresh adaptation ... Uproarious. [Leaming has a] talent for precise, beautifully controlled comedy."

Lawson Taitte, The Dallas Morning News

"The Funniest Show in Town ... Flea beats six months of therapy ... This play is more fun than anything I've seen this year ... Don't miss this one."

Glenn Arbery, People Newspapers

"A swinging 1960s sex farce with as much innuendo as an episode of Laugh In. ... A Flea in Her Ear laughs at our need to be politically and morally correct, and makes us laugh back."

Leah Gerchario, Dallas Observer

"[The] comic timing couldn't be better ... a hilarious example of how to set up and execute physical comedy."

Perry Stewart, Fort Worth Star Telegram
