“Talk Opera”: “This hugely funny send-up of trashy TV talk shows deserves to be seen on as many stages as possible….dispatches political correctness with merciless relish. As with all fine comedy, there is serious intention behind the mayhem.”
“Castle Walk”: “Granger writes pointed scenes that waver appropriately between wistful and angry, and bewitching songs that evoke classic-Broadway ballads and torch numbers with haunting emotional authenticity.”
