BROADWAY WORLD - RECOMMENDED
"What makes the play a big success is its blatant, over.the.top, outrageous comedy that will not quit. The acting from the five-member ensemble is nothing short of brilliant under Jim Fall's slick and insightful direction...of Skora's fluid dialogue."

TOP TEN pic for Stage Raw - RECOMMENDED
"The show boasts quick-witted, funny dialogue and vivid multi-dimensional characters. Surprisingly wise and funny. - Paul Birchall - Stage Raw
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - NoHo Arts District.
"This is a brilliant, laugh-out-loud comedy with gorgeously awful characters to love. Of course, every single actor is fantastic, I really couldn't single anyone out-no point. But the writing is the star here. Howard Skora has invented quite a kooky and ridiculous lot. All brimming with psychosis and bitterness and unspoken fears-hilarious. The humor is loud and frank and beautifully wrought by these impressive actors, their perfect timing and their delicious characters. Bravo to the director Jim Fall for giving the words and the actors the room they needed to be this good. I highly recommend Damaged Furniture at The Whitefire Theatre."

"If you don't find something uproarious in this piece, it may just be that your sense of humor is asleep."
Elaine Mura - Splash Mags
"Damaged Furniture offers a rip-roaring, adult look at expectations and challenges through the prism of a family from hell."
Mary Mallory - Tolucan Times
"...Beyond Brilliant. Howard Skora's latest production, "Damaged Furniture," showcases his sublime sense of humor while mixing in family melodrama and just a taste of New York to make you feel as if you've visited NYC even though you haven't left Sherman Oaks."
Kevin M. Thomas - ReelKev
"A play as well performed and profoundly written as Howard Skoras newest, Damaged Furniture, deserves the highest of accolades. Rarely have I seen a family dramedy with characters this sharp or dialogue this funny. As a story of humans coming together, with emotions still raw, after losing their beloved patriarch of the family, king of the furniture business, this show is a true winner." - Bonnie Priever
"One of the funniest comedies you will ever see. I guarantee a laugh a minute."
