    What the popular press said...

    "Terrific, scary-funny play."
    Charles Isherwood for New York Times

    "Devilishly funny comedy. ... In the final moments, the play hammers out a preachy ending. But that’s a minor complaint for a show that holds you tight in the palm of its hand."
    Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

    "Boasts the kind of berserk, star-making performance you have to see to believe. Make that two performances — both by the same actor, Steven Boyer. ... By the time 'Hand to God' reaches its Grand Guignol finale, you’re reeling from shock and laughter."
    Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

    "A chaotic comedy with some funny moments to compensate for its ragged edges."
    Robert Feldberg for The Record

    "Steven Boyer’s terrific performance as Jason – and Tyrone - ...is something magical that is likely to nab him many an acting honor at this season’s awards time."
    Michael Sommers for Newsroom Jersey

    "Tyrone, the dirty-minded, foul-mouthed sock puppet ... steals the show in “Hand to God,” Robert Askins’ pitch-black comedy."
    Marilyn Stasio for Variety
