"In ‘Monsoon Season,’ a Marital Squall Turns Ugly: Bad things happen to bad people in Lizzie Vieh’s comedy, set in Arizona, about a couple who break up, crack up and make up."
"'Monsoon Season' and the Poor Slobs in the Mirror: Lizzie Vieh's horror-comedy two-hander comes to New York."
"Vieh's script is extremely clever in its telling two sides of a story completely by separate monologues. The dialogue is real and yet extremely funny, never revealing too much, allowing the audience to piece together what's going on as the actors deliver their lines with impeccable timing and tumult."
"Black comedy…clever and merciless, but it is also oddly compassionate…Danny and his ex-wife Julia may be losers who constantly make laughably wrong choices, but they are trying to do right, to be better…ultimately gruesome…but there is humor throughout."
"'Monsoon Season' is a strange, funny, and haunting piece, which depicts, with wit and pathos, two lives careening out of control, and yet never takes a condescending or mocking attitude toward its characters."
