"Director Kate Eminger stages the play with delicate care. There's a sweetness in Ruhl's script that is apparent from the very beginning, and Eminger has managed to get her actors to extend that sweetness into their performances. [...] What is probably most surprising about this very funny, utterly charming, and truly sweet production is that the play, in the end, is not melancholy at all. …The further it went, the more I began to smile, until, at the end, I was quite literally grinning stupidly from ear to ear."
