* "One of the most Intelligent and sobering plays in the short history of gay theater." - Stage and Cinema.
* "There's no excuse not to see this raw and riveting psychological drama. Though some might shy away, the play's intense and demanding sexual scenes, including nudity, didn't scare off these actors." --Mark Cofta, Philadelphia City Paper
* "Earnestly performed by Peter Andrew Danzig and Thomas Raniszewski, who play all the roles skillfully. Karen Case Cook's stark production became more impressive by degrees as it unfolded." --Howard Shapiro, Philadelphia Inquirer
