SWEET
The characters that appear in the windows are absolutely the funniest ever and keep the audience laughing throughout. They are Greg Barnett, Jennifer Laks, Richard Hoyt Miller, Steve Oreste, Flora Plumb, and Jill Remez, all who each play two wild and crazy characters in this unusual play. One would not expect such humor from so serious a situation.
Carol Kaufman Segal – Reviewplays

BITTERSWEET
This situation lends itself to high drama and/or rollicking comedy yet neither is achieved by this West Coast premiere. What we do get are some laughs as we momentarily get glimpses of the occupants’ shenanigans and a terrific ensemble of seven actors, six of them in dual roles, including Jennifer Laks and Steve Oreste.
Ingrid Wilmot – Will Call

SWEET
One thing, the audience agreed upon was that it was well done, funny, and brilliantly performed.
Audrey Linden – LA Examiner

BITTERSWEET
Director Bruce Gray and his company get the necessary laughs, but the play has a slight air of calculated self-consciousness.
Don Shirley – LA Stage Times

SWEET
This play, finally, is a mish-mash, but some of it will make you laugh and some of it will hold your interest. It depends upon how “real” you need to be.
Cynthia Citron – LA Examiner
