"An exquisitely intimate dinner party play...It’s one of those truly unique New York theatrical moments that you want to witness...I found Crispino’s performance completely engaging...Rubin has crafted a perfect dish that is visually appealing and theatrically satisfying. The pace is tight, keeping the audience entranced and curious to know more...It’s an intelligent piece of theater made by three women who understand how to tell an intimate story that makes your feel part of the family."
