KFAI / The Star Tribune

"Robin Johnson and Jeff Huset give magnificently classical performances. Elizabeth Rex is a great show!" [Elizabeth Rex]

"Director, Craig Johnson, has done an impeccable job of casting this story. Each of the actors is believable in their respective roles--playing with all the varying dynamics (sibling and siblings, parents and children, husbands and wives), it all makes sense.... From the very beginning of this production, I was hooked. I wanted to know each of these people and their individual stories. I forgot where I was, what I was doing, and just enjoyed the show." [Morning's At Seven]

The Star Tribune

"Wilson has peopled his play with some wonderfully detailed characters, and this production, directed by Michael Jurenek, features a number of stand-out performances...strong offerings include John Lilleberg as the hard-bitten hotel manager, and Robin Johnson as a phlegmatic, supremely disinterested desk clerk." [Hot L Baltimore]

Minnesota Fringe Festival

"Robin Johnson was outstanding. Her face, her voice and her body language were perfect."
