    What the popular press said...

    "Lacks real dramatic tension."
    Ben Brantley for New York Times

    "Call it David Mamet's mega-mash-up. Or, just call the play ..., what it is: slick but slight."
    Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

    "A bewildering muddle."
    Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

    "Full of wry jokes, epigrammatic jolts, and acrid, even cheeky provocations."
    John Simon for Bloomberg

    "Briskly entertaining."
    Elysa Gardner for USA Today

    "More a political tract than a compelling drama."
    David Sheward for Back Stage

    "Provocative, hot-topic new play, is anything but simple."
    Michael Kuchwara for Associated Press

    "So fast-paced and entertaining that its flaws only come nagging after it's over. "
    Frank Scheck for The Hollywood Reporter

    "Grows increasingly wobbly as it twists its way to an unsatisfying wrap-up."
    David Rooney for Variety
