Reviews

Vince Mediaa, Mediaa Film & Theatre

“(This) version scores high with fans with the book since it focuses on some points the screen play missed. This is a windy fast play, 90-minute romp without intermission through Vonnegut’s nonlinear narrative.”

The Chicago Reader

"The show moved me so much I couldn't speak for ten minutes after."

Wall Street Journal

"Brings Mr. Vonnegut's story to life in a way that seems compelling and contemporary."
