Critics’ Reviews

John Larroquette brings a mix of gravitas and ruefulness to Russell, whose only apparent shortcoming is trouble remaining faithful to his wife.

Review by Elysa Gardner from USA Today

Director Michael Wilson’s cast is like the U.S. flag — stars of every stripe from film, TV and stage.

Review by Joe Dziemianowicz from New York Daily News

Despite smaller parts and stiff competition—this show is starrier than a cloudless mountain sky—Angela Lansbury, Candice Bergen and Kerry Butler shine brightest.

Review by Elisabeth Vincentelli from New York Post

Shrewdly cast, with a starry ensemble that lands every laugh while bringing sly shadings to their characters.

Review by David Rooney from The Hollywood Reporter

Ms. Lansbury embodies her character with such style that she is as vivid a presence as any when she’s onstage, and manages to nail a sure laugh merely by lowering a newspaper.
