"This melting away of ethnicity into the quirky ethos of playwight Beth Henley's Southern gothic humor is a testament to the talents of Elizabeth Liang (a perfectly put-upon Lenny), Kimiko Gelman (a fabulously flighty Meg) and Maya Erskine (a beautifully batty Babe)
...excellent actors" --LA Weekly
"Thanks to honest and captivating performances by Elizabeth Liang, Kimiko Gelman and Maya Erskine, the play reaches moments of wild absurdity without losing a sense of reality... As Lenny, Liang is a rock solid anchor."
--LA Downtown News
"Liang, Gelman, and Erskine make Lenny, Meg, and Babe about as real as real can be, and all the funnier for being authentic human beings whom we recognize and care about... From Lenny's bedraggled shuffle to her dorky sweetness and inextinguishable pluck, Liang makes you forget any Lenny you may have seen before, yet love her every bit as much."
"The cast makes Henley's script shine" --Rafu Shimpo
"The performancesall of themare stellar and deeply funny. But special mad props, of course, go to Elizabeth Liang, who made me cry..." --Bamboo Nation
