Rosemary Harris and Jan Maxwell are giving the kind of performance that turn agnostics into true believers. It’s something close to a miracle.” – Ben Brantley, The New York Times

4 STARS (OUT OF 5). Doug Hughes’ 16-member cast executes the hullabaloo to perfection. Watching Reg Rogers as Tony is a delight, reminding audiences that there are still actors alive who can marry rapier swordplay with rapier wit. Rosemary Harris possesses the driest wit in the house. Jan Maxwell draws huzzahs for humanity and comic attack. Her performance is highly accomplished.” – Brendan Lemon, The Financial Times

“Manhattan Theatre Club offers a splendid spread of Broadway pleasures. Rosemary Harris glides like a swan over the glistening pond of the play, while the divine Jan Maxwell plays her role with the sparkle, bubble, sweetness and bite of a properly chilled champagne.” – Adam Feldman, Time Out New York
