And Critic's Reactions
“Engaging Shaw is a charming romantic comedy featuring four razor-sharp tongues. If there’s a minute of the play that’s less than clever, you’ll be hard pressed to find it.”  
—Ken Jaworowski, THE NEW YORK TIMES

Warren Kelley and Claire Warden in Abingdon Theatre Company's production off-Broadway.

“The play is written like one of [Shaw’s], with talk zipping in thrilling, dizzying circles. Thought-
       provoking fun.”
