"CRITICS PICK! Plenty of young writers hit on a good opening gimmick for a play but don't know where to go with it after the first scene or two. Josh Koenigsberg doesn't have that problem in Al's Business Cards, a zippy new comedy." - The New York Times
"Koenigsberg's characters are ... goofy as all get-out, but he has written them with so much affection ... that we love them and root for them, warts and all." - NYTheatre.com
"Al's Business Cards, [is]a sweet-tempered sitcom by Josh Koenigsberg... The twisty plot turns on complications that arise when a New Jersey print shop mixes up the business cards of a non-union electrician and a pretty real estate agent. Koenigsberg smartly shows that the mistakes and misunderstandings -- both comic and hurtful -- are largely based on assumptions about gender, class and ethnicity." - Variety
