"Gianni Schicchi has all the elements of good comedy: wit, timing, and an analysis of the consequences of crime that probes the complexity of sin and as it relates to God and man."
--Rona Hirsch, THE BALTIMORE SUN

"If you like zany farces with bawdy jokes, high-flyin' slapstick comedy and nonstop 100 mph action, Gianni Schicchi is the best tonic for your summer doldrums. ...There was never a point in the show when someone wasn't laughing hysterically."
—Leonard Hughes, THE WASHINGTON POST
