    What the popular press said...

    "Genial but flat coming-of-age comedy."
    Charles Isherwood for New York Times

    "This terrific new play ... more than measures up."
    Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

    "The pleasant but inconsequential "The Talls" covers well-trodden ground." Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

    "Funny off-Broadway debut of playwright Anna Kerrigan. Its 80 minutes fly by and leave you with plenty to chew on."
    Philip Boroff for Bloomberg

    "There's nothing particularly wrong... But there's nothing very distinctive about it either."
    Erik Haagensen for Back Stage

    "An underdeveloped new play that will never be seen again ."
    Michael Sommers for Newsroom New Jersey

    "As relentlessly dull and self-evident as any other coming-of-age play."
    Steven Suskin for Variety
