“My favorite was M. Thomas Cooper’s Tongue, Tied. I even like the comma in the title. He & She have Problems in Relating. These are compounded by the Sock-Puppets on their hands. Beings who have Lives of Their Own!” - Glenn Loney’s Show Notes
“…the mesmerizing, very funny “Tongue, Tied”…” - The Courier-Journal
“This one’s definitely a comedy, and a bit raucous too.” - Reporter-Times
