“When it comes to reminding us just why we leave our homes on a cold winter’s night and seek the special joys of a live theatrical performance, playwright Stephen Belber has the big boys beat.” —Wall Street Journal
“Mamet is angry and has a point of view — two points of view, really — while Belber’s subject is points of view.” —Roger Ebert
“Belber favors fast-talkers who use chitchat, digression and eloquent bluster to maneuver their way out of tricky situations. … Like any good playwright, he is less interested in determining what’s real than in exploring what makes solid fiction.” —Time Out
