"This is exhilarating theatre, brilliantly scripted by Richard Gustin and directed by Mindy Cooper to be simultaneously comedic and thought-provoking."
"Director Mindy Cooper keeps the movement fluid with only two bodies, a small space and a chair. Anyone who has ever auditioned for anything, or taken any kind of acting class will recognize this situation and revel in its insanity.."
"Director Mindy Cooper has been able to emphasize the characteristics of Actor and Director in a truly engaging way."
"Director Mindy Cooper had an incredibly easy job. Everything was spelled out for her in Gustin's script. And yet Cooper still put her stamp on the production. There was never a dull moment and every beat had a purpose. The storytelling was sharp and precise."
