    What the popular press said...

    "Generally less-than-delightful. "
    Ben Brantley for New York Times

    "At best, the production ... is efficiently attractive. At worst, it's garbled and incomprehensible."
    Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

    "Some of Shaw's play feels dated, but a lot of it retains an indignant ferocity and gleaming sharpness. Unfortunately, it's nowhere to be seen in a production whose edges have all been dulled."
    Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

    "Lacking both talent and appeal, Hawkins gesticulates incessantly, fidgets intemperately, walks funnily and tosses her head rather like a social-climbing charwoman."
    John Simon for Bloomberg

    "Largely crackling production."
    Erik Haagensen for Back Stage

    "Assured, and engaging, production."
    Robert Feldberg for The Record

    "Beware actors or directors who bring sentimentality where Shaw demands cold, hard reason."
    David Cote for Time Out New York

    "Disappointing production."
    Michael Summers for Newsroom Jersey

    "Doug Hughes' workmanlike production is nothing to write home about."
    Marilyn Stasio for Variety
