"Luke Sheppard directs with pinpoint precision, so that every transition, every tiny movement is flawlessly slick... a delicious start to the Watermill's 50th anniversary year."
Judi Herman, Whats on Stage
"First staged in 2011 in Chicago, and now receiving its UK premiere at the hands of Luke Sheppard (a rising star, having brought Lin-Manuel Miranda’s In the Heights over here too), the salient artistic clue is in the title... If you need a break from doom and gloom like a hole in the head, steer well clear. Otherwise, enjoy."
Dominic Cavendish, The Telegraph
"frenetic and hilarious"
