SWEET
That McNeil’s staging achieves such uniform and tightly-orchestrated performances from the entirety of his 11-member cast is all the more impressive — there are no weak links in this finely-tuned ensemble effort.
Philip Brandes – LA Times

SWEET
It’s an angry, dysfunctional family again, folks, but this time the intensity is mitigated by a cast that is uniformly excellent and a set designed by Michael Fitzgerald and Aidan Fiorito that is tightly partitioned and amazingly cluttered.
Cynthia Citron – LA Examiner

SWEET
What happens when good people give in to their dark urges and give up their dreams, and how do they deal with the consequences? It’s an intriguing setup for a drama, and it’s tackled here with solid theatermaking.
Dany Margolies – ArtsInLA

SWEET
McNeil, who also directs, draws fine performances from a sizable cast that includes Heidi Sulzman, a runaway hoot as the mouthy, attitudinally vibrant June Bug.
