"This nonsensical, broad comedy is penned by the clever Greg Kotis. Songs and arrangements by Steven Gross are whimsical and entertaining, and costume designer Whitney Locher presents her vaudevillian best in this frothy piece. Led expertly by director Ilana Becker, the cast bludgeons, connives and wiggles their way through this slice of holiday slapstick; young and old, the actors' comic timing is well-honed and the fun they have performing this piece is entirely infectious."
