Our first review came in, hot off the virtual presses, from Charles Kruger and TheatreStorm.com Charles has a lot of interesting things to say about the performances and the excellent production values, and says “This is a show that everyone can appreciate, but anybody who has direct experience in living with mental illness will find it especially moving.”

Our first review is in, and its a big one. The San Francisco Chronicle covered our opening night and we are thrilled to share this very positive review!
Robert Hurwitt, the dean of SF critics, writes, “The comedy and theatrical invention in “Why Torture Is Wrong, and the People Who Love Them” are as zany and pointed as you’d expect from Christopher Durang… much of the comedy is as immediate as today’s debates about gun control, pre-emptive drone strikes and (courtesy of “Zero Dark Thirty”) “enhanced” interrogation techniques…. Durang’s provocative comedy offers considerable rewards.”

We got our first two reviews today, and they are both very positive.
First from Lee Hartgrave, writing for ForAllEvents.com
“The Actors are “Awesome!”… They deserve a couple of Oscars… What a show! – “Wonderful and imaginative!” 4/4 Glasses of Champaign. (ed-Yum!)
And next from Kedar Adour, our Theatre MD (never a bad idea to have around!)
“a great cast… devious and inventive… this reviewer highly recommends seeing another side of Albee….you should not miss this production!”
