"There is no playwright on the planet these days who is writing better than Neil LaBute." --John Lahr, The New Yorker
"Neil LaBute is the first dramatist since David Mamet and Sam Shepard--since Edward Albee, actually to mix sympathy and savagery, pathos and power." --Donald Lyons, New York Post
"LaBute [is] our American Aesop, a mad moral fabulist serving stiff tonic for our country's sin-sick souls." --John Istel, American Theatre
