"It was a lot of fun watching this performance as a radio show, what with mikes, sound effects, advertisements, and lights for applause. All of the performers added so much life to their characters with their expressions and some movements."

"Theatre West mounts the show as a fundraiser for the company and features a cast of excellent voice actors, many of whom play multiple roles. The set is a barebones mock up of a broadcast studio, with stand-up microphones and a sign above the stage that flashes “applaud” to prompt a studio audience... I almost forgot to say that I really enjoyed this show. I left the theatre with a smile."
