"Jennifer Chang stages the event, and it is an event, with a nimble touch."

  --Stephen Leigh Morris, LA WEEKLY

 

"So delightfully ridiculous at times that I found myself muttering, "What am I watching?!" That I reveled in it is a testament to the energetic cast (Feodor Chin, Amy Ellenberger, Jeff Galfer, and Larry Herron) and Jennifer Chang's briskly paced directing."

  --Prince Gomolvilas, BAMBOO NATION

 

"Things get crazy early on, but the show ramps up to ludicrous speed pretty quickly...It’s a night of zany fun with Chang and the gang at the marquee destroying title, The Debate over Courtney O’Connell of Columbus, Nebraska."

  --Mike Buzzelli, EYE SPY LA

 

"The cast works overtime to make every moment genuine and humorous."

  --Jennifer Chen, EDGE LOS ANGELES

 

"Known for their inventive venue choices, Chalk Repertory invades Café Metropol, with a refined brasserie menu and soulful jazz-band residents lending ambiance to an already engaging production."

  --Kenneth Hugues, FLAVORPILL
