“Mann loves David Hare’s plays. You can tell from the intense production...Mann adds race, since Kakkar is a woman of color born in India. Race/politics/class crackle and snap in an electric arc between these two. Kakkar-as-Kyra is superbly ironic, Wood-as-Tom bitter and kinetic...Mann’s deft, subtle touch in ‘Skylight’ reminds us of how great she’s been. And David Hare reminds us that love is like the snow: It can cover everything.” Full Review
“Mildly entertaining farce of wacky gods and clueless humans...There are laughs, good exchanges, and some fine hugger-mugger; this is a Ludwig property, after all...But, alas, there’s a first-drafty feeling to ‘Gods of Comedy’ that makes it seem like a 1970s sitcom. At the end, no relationships have gone anywhere...The gods of comedy stride off to new hijinks, already forgetting the travails of Daphne and Ralph, as we are. Not that there aren’t smiles throughout." Full Review
