"One of the most potent and fierce dramas of the season…This two-person drama wallops Broadway with brute force…No moment is wasted in getting to know these characters from start to finish…These actors never run into scene trouble in this tour de force of a play. They let the masterful language by playwright David Harrower take them where the play says they must go…I was glued by moment one...Run to see this play that is enormously brave and masterfully produced."

"What the musical lacks is a way of synthesizing this humor, singing, and great character work into an actual theatrical event. Don’t get me wrong, it is ridiculously entertaining. I made a fool of myself laughing and smiling through the whole thing, but despite it’s plot, it lacks story. Not that this lacking kills the show." Full Review
"Complete with stylized modern song and dance, prancing pony-men, and text that goes so fast that you feel like you're at the Daytona 500 of the theatre, this play is a mental exercise that leaves the audience nothing but speechless and loving every second of it...It is refreshing, entertaining and constantly presents the audience with moments that literally made multiple audience members simultaneously say aloud 'What?!'...GO SEE THIS. Words cannot capture this gem to society, but seeing it ... Full Review
"The story is told masterfully told...It has the theatrical precision of a Sondheim, the heart of a Tennessee Williams, and the drama of an Arthur Miller...The company quite literally breathes life into this production, and in that they are flawless...I had to wipe tears from my eyes because something so pure, simple, and honest occurred on the stage...See this once-in-a-lifetime theatrical experience."

"I’ll only reveal enough to convince you that you must see this play, and given that the aspects of this play are divine in every way, it won’t take much...by the end of this two-act, O’Hara has explored a slew of relevant topics, all while telling a story that left my and the entire audiences’ mouths vacillating between two positions: screaming in laughter, and agape in utter shock...Go forth and see good theatre. Go see 'Barbecue.'" Full Review
"This brilliant comedy is filled with moments that made me and the entire audience laugh out loud and ask ourselves, 'Can they say that?' It captures so much that we love about musical comedy. Despite it’s minor flaws of production here and there, it is a divine vehicle for amazing performances and some of the best musical comedy New York has seen in quite some time." Full Review
