"The trio of actors Krieth has cast performs superbly as an ensemble, convincing the audience that they are the characters they portray, reciting dialogue naturally and making us really care about the characters, no matter how they behave toward each other. Too, the intimacy of the little black box theater enhances the experience...A sobering, playful, romantic examination of the human heart—one you will talk about for days afterward." Full Review
for a previous production "It might be easy to dismiss Joe DiPietro's 'Clever Little Lies' as a bit of fluff were it not for the humanity of its characters and its revelation of the darker truths of our natures. What starts out as a snappy domestic comedy soon devolves into a study of marriage, fidelity, parenting and trust...The combination of comedy and tragedy results in a delicious examination of what it means to be a spouse and a parent. Not bad for a 90-minute piece of 'fluff'." Full Review
for a previous production "A mildly diverting albeit poignant production that manages to be both entertaining and enlightening...Director Flynn keeps the action moving for a brisk 90 minutes...Opel is terrific as Bobby...The seven-member cast works as a tight ensemble...I confess that I wasn’t blown away by 'Curvy Widow' at first, but in retrospect I have concluded that such life-changing events as middle-aged widowhood...don’t really need a 76-trombone band and lots of jokes."
