"…a crackling good bit of entertainment…bursts with a Stoppardian eagerness to tickle as it tangles with weightier issues…Hilarity, thy name is WITTENBERG." —NY Times. "[An] adorable, playfully anachronistic and unerringly affectionate academic Satire/Political Satire, a sort of quadrangular Shakespeare in Love: It's a philosophy survey course and a non-smirking smartypants comedy all in one." —NY Magazine. "…a delightful romp that's as accessible as it is thought-provoking. Tom Stoppard, eat your heart out." —New York Post. "…the pace is zippy, the themes beautifully articulated and the overall sensation exhilarating…'To be or not to be' never sounded so entertaining." —Huffington Post. "A cocktail of brainy allusions, absurdist plot twists, sly wordplay and disarming anachronisms, fortified with serious ideas, WITTENBERG should delight Tom Stoppard fans, recovering English majors, disillusioned academics and anyone who has ever wondered what Helen of Troy was like in the sack…WITTENBERG's chief assets are Davalos' light, confident handling of bona fide philosophical concepts and his archly virtuosic language…" —Washington Post. "Finally—a decent Protestant Reformation comedy! Davalos' wordplay, plus his riffs on religion vs. philosophy, made me hanker for a script. The dialogue sometimes flies by…and it's obvious that WITTENBERG would be as much fun to read as this production is to see." —Philadelphia Inquirer.
