"But you need more than a gorgeous look to make a play like this work. And directorJeffrey Pufahl is expert in setting the right tone for a comedy so dependent on style, pacing, punctuation, and detail. He’s also has a brilliant eye for casting." -- Burke Campbell

"All would agree that Persephone Theatre's production, under Jeffrey Pufahl's direction, is first-rate. Events occur on Patrick Du Wors's suitably claustrophobic set of odd angles featuring a lovely little stationery store where you wouldn't expect it."

Pufahl obviously had a clear vision of how this play ought to be performed and followed through without compromise. All the individual aspects of production work together and contribute to a uniform and inspired overall tone... Pufahl takes chances with everything from the stage design to the choice of script and it pays off. The production is flawless. It looks, sounds, and feels as good as we have any right to expect live theatre to be.”
