“…This is an aggressively bodily, gleefully obnoxious, and gratifyingly maniacal take on Genet, complete with dance breaks and actors climbing on the ceiling (including Daniel Irizarry, who plays the maids’ boss and also directs). Audiences game for such wild impishness will find a production that positively gushes with superb physical comedy yet stays true to the spirit of the original.” TheNewYorker.com

“One-Eighth’s suitable youthful, vital production of this new work is mature in its emotional depth, but explosive in its physicality. […] a vital theatre experience that’s good for the blood, as well as the soul.” Theasy.com
