"Mr. Adjmi is one of several adventurous young playwrights now ... who rather than avoiding clichés are embracing them to find out what enduring truths and lies still lurk beneath their threadbare exteriors. Sometimes, as in Mr. Adjmi’s “3C”, this can bear revelatory dividends." - The New York Times
"FOUR STARS! CRITICS PICK. Bitterly funny and inventive...Adjmi’s script, quick-cutting from dopey to deranged in seconds, is intensely funny and unnerving in equal measure." - Time Out New York
"TOP 10 OF 2012. Sitcom farce returned as tragedy in David Adjmi’s hilarious and discomfiting vivisection of fear and loathing..." - Time Out New York
"Sharp edged, discomfiting...funny and clever." - Associated Press
"TOP 10 OF 2012. Sharp, darkly hilarious... one of the best productions of the season, and one of the saddest." - New York Post
