"Done with great consciousness and dabbles of humor...Lew keeps the stage interesting during every moment, ensuring that even during the more informational scenes there is action and movement on the stage, keeping the audience intrigued and never bored. The talented three-actor ensemble were a joy to watch...A standout performance by Leavitt...Filled with impeccable comic timing and sensitivity. A thoroughly intriguing and enjoyable play."
