Review:

A beautiful, heartbreaking knockout of a play, as startling and innovative and human on the page as on the stage.” Junot Díaz, Pulitzer Prize-Winning author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao

This is one of the best new plays I’ve seen in years. This is a very funny, warm, and yes, uplifting play with characters that are vivid, vital, and who stay with you long after the play is over.” Frank Rizzo, Hartford Courant

To Hudes' credit and our benefit, the ways in which the people within those worlds bicker, undermine and support each other are as compelling as the inevitable intersections and intrusions between them.” Robert Hurwitt, San Francisco Gate

Hudes corrals harsh voices and brutal stories into a magnificent whole that is beautiful not because it is lovely but because it is brokenheartedly tender and true.” Charles McNulty, LA Times

Beautifully resounding drama... The playwright examines an array of emotional toils by splashing together droplets of life’s bleak realities, harsh revelations, fragile successes and modest triumphs, all of which conspire like tiny specks of contrasting colors on a canvas. A rich, brilliant montage of American urban life that is as dazzling to watch as it is difficult to look away from.” -Peter Santilli, Associated Press

Hudes brilliantly taps into both the family ties that bind as well as the alternative cyber universe Her dialogue is bright, her characters, compelling It’s only when cyber meets the real world that anger gives way to forgiveness and resistance becomes redemption; the heart of the play opens up and the waters flow freely.” -Variety
