"TV's favorite curmudgeon delivers a Broadway hit, but a mediocre play...David’s first Broadway play runs barely two hours, but it seems padded out, overpopulated, and funny only in spurts. It’s great to see David, the star and creator of the popular HBO series Curb Your Enthusiasm, taking a crack at Broadway. But for all the audience’s indulgent laughter and the obligatory standing ovation at the end, one can’t help but detect a certain, well, lack of enthusiasm." Full Review
"The stunning revival of Chicago that just opened on Broadway ought to win over any doubters. Chicago hasn't merely aged well; it has come of age...A show that doesn't just give us the old razzle-dazzle; it glows." Full Review
for a previous production "The play revolves around real-life people who have been caricatured endlessly, yet turns them into flesh-and-blood human beings. It posits a future scenario, but never slips off the rails into apocalyptic fantasy or satire. It is a gripping evening of theater, a rare contemporary play with real tragic vision, and easily the most sophisticated political drama I have ever seen." Full Review
