"This is indeed not your mother’s — or your father’s — 'Three Sisters.' But is it a wild, fantastical experience to be savored by those playgoers who make the trip to Red Bank. This is a once-in-a-lifetime night in the theater." Full Review
"Based on letters his parents wrote to each other during World War II, this epistolary play is by turns romantic and wryly funny...This play is a delicious confection yet with a solid core of realism. Ludwig has outdone himself, which is no small feat. While the play uses strobe effects and the sound of explosions, which may bother some in the audience, it is a perfect piece to welcome us back to live theatre at the George Street Playhouse.

"Luna Stage’s artistic director Ari Laura Kreith helms her talented cast with skill, avoiding the temptation to go for the histrionic in favor of a more personal, and thus more affecting, depiction of the story...It is a privilege to watch fine actors at work in such a well written and well directed theatre piece.

It is upbeat, it is hopeful, and it is funny." Full Review
"It’s Only a Play is fast and funny. It is a show to lift one’s spirits and revel in the misfortunes of others, no matter how much those misfortunes are of their own making. It is a marvelous, glittery, spinning top of a play, and I urge you to see it. Kudos to the George Street Playhouse for bringing this lively comedy back to the stage!" Full Review
"This show is, in a word, wonderful...The score is rich with more-than-occasional wit...If you love musicals, especially the ins and outs of their creation, you should see this show. If you know girls and boys who are interested in the theatre or are highly imaginative, you should take them to this show...The show is corny, and charming, and utterly irresistible. Allow yourself to be perfectly delighted by this gem of a production." Full Review
