Published Reviews

"Great fun...what's more delicious than watching a greedy tycoon get bilked by a charming scamp? Always amusing...pointed without being preachy...that rarest of theatrical birds, the intelligently written frivolous entertainment."

Mike Steele, Minneapolis Star Tribune

"Few sights are more satisfying than that of a fool and his money being parted. In Jeff Wanshel's Diamond Cut Diamond, the story is presented as a Victorian mystery melodrama in which a clever swindler repeatedly victimizes an avaricious diamond tycoon by taking advantage of his cupidity. A deft parody...it has a light, breezy--and distinctly cinematic--style all its own."
