Broadway World

Carol’s Culture Corner
RECOMMENDED… still entertaining audiences with its unusual sense of humor… The cast is superb” — Carol Kaufman Segal, Carol’s Culture Corner

PITCH PERFECT… the strongest production of the show I’ve seen…. skewers today’s pretensions with as much skill as Orton’s original targets… his production of Loot should be on the list of any devoted theatergoer, but the other rarely seen shows in the Odyssey’s season look just as intriguing.” — Michael van Duzer,
