"'Shut Up' never does, and that's a GOOD thing!"

- Charlotte Observer


"The 80 minute play flies by…in the end, neither Kahn nor Gurwitch wins. The winner is the audience!"

- Buffalo News


"Strikes directly to the funny bone…After 80 intermissionless minutes, you really know Kahn and Gurwitch, more to the point, you'd want to know them!"

- Lawrence Toppman, Charlotte Observer


"A quirky true-to-life comedy and a candid look at the inside of a marriage. Jeff and Annabelle find humor in the truth about themselves, their parenting skills, and what it really takes to survive marriage and cross the finish line with a wine glass in one hand and your sanity in the other."

- Arts a la Mode


"Bold…humorous and completely refreshing!"
