“One of the funniest shows in New York...A completely hilarious and delightful experience...Technically...a reading of five ‘hot and spicy new’ plays...This show approaches stereotypes in ways that make you drop your jaw in giggle and awkwardness, but the ‘stereotypes’ most barraged are those of theatre world...Each actor is fleshed in the madness of their persona...This cast was absolutely unbelievable, and ones I could watch in every comedy.” Full Review
