Stage and Cinema- Recommended

"...OK, Chase’s spoof of psychiatry is pretty familiar stuff, the love interest (between a Nurse and a young Doctor) is pure formula, and the play moves a bit more sedately than the screwball film. And maybe director Andre Barnicle’s perfect, perfect, perfect cast may be a bit too manic to make the playwright’s point of just who is crazy, but darn it if this 75-year-old warmly textured period piece with gorgeous production values doesn’t leave you warmer and fuzzier, well, than a rabbit. Hop to it."

Stage Scene LA- Highly Recommended

"...A 1950 movie adaptation may have made Elwood P. Dowd’s name synonymous with another actor surnamed Stewart, but there’s not a trace of Jimmy in his namesake’s irresistible star turn on the Laguna Playhouse stage, the L.A. theater treasure investing Elwood with the signature quirks audiences have savored since 3rd Rock From The Sun rocketed a young actor named French to TV stardom while at the same time making Elwood his own distinct, heartfelt creation."
