"Under the well-paced direction of Erica Weiss, the talented ensemble gets the laughs and the concern from the audience as the stories unfold.  This family seems genuinely family!" - Chicago Now

"Director Erica Weiss has focused on universality, keeping things moving... She’s fashioned this new play into a compelling story of survival and Mahal, the Filipino word for love." - Centerstage Chicago

"Joseph Anthony Foronda...anchor[s] an actors' ensemble delivering articulate portrayals devoid of stereotype, rendering this a fable of redemption stretching beyond its superficial ethnic boundaries." - Windy City Times
