"‘Of Government’ has the appeal of one of those wayward trips to nowhere people find themselves craving when the weather turns warm, preferably in an open convertible at lazy speeds. You sit back as the scenery changes, sometimes quite unexpectedly, and get to meet a whole lot of interesting strangers along the way — in this case, what is surely the most likably idiosyncratic assortment of women gathered on a New York stage."

"If ever a political play were huggable, this would be it...Borinsky can write like blazes—and he likes to prove it—so amidst the forest of naturalistic dialogue, huge gouts of monologue suddenly rear up...All this hilarity does not disguise the fury at the show's core...Everything that goes wrong in 'Of Government' can be traced to some systemic failure, some way in which the U.S. fails its people."
