"Wickedly clever. . . . Ruhl's unique, breezily elegant dialogue is fully present, as is her pleasingly loopy logic."—Variety

"In the smart, rollicking Stage Kiss . . . passion and fidelity engage in a kind of elegant pas de deux. . . . The play manages to be both wholly original and instantly recognizable . . . with its combination of hilarity and trenchancy."—John Lahr, T

I realize it's hard to review a play just reading it, as a lot of times a play just doesn't come alive until on the stage... but yeash! This reads horribly ... and can't imagine it'd be much improved in the playing.
Weird. And not in a good way.
An odd read -- the artifice of the cardboard, larger-than-life actors trapped in a bad 30s revival in the first act somehow comes off the page as more real and engaging than the more three dimensional (if more schematic) developments in the second act. I guess I'll have to see it on stage.

Delightful...sometimes dark! Funny and lyrical, too. Looking forward to seeing my college's production this fall!
Funny. Playful.
