"[An] engaging, superbly acted drama...
"All of the actors inhabit their roles with an admirable ease...
"Trying to get Hank to understand that he needs to shake things up or be swamped by the forces of gentrification [is] Toby (Brian Miskell), the rock-dweeb who works tirelessly at the bar and pines hopelessly for Lena.
Miskell’s put-upon Toby exudes a mousy charm as he grouses about Lena’s new boyfriend."
- Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
"Brian Miskell lend[s] strong support as...a heartsick bar manager."
- Joe Dziemianowicz, New York Daily News
"Toby [is] played with a wistful, wry, and willing demeanor by Brian Miskell."
- David Roberts, Theatre Reviews Limited
"The actors carry the beat in their bones...brilliantly...like a really great band...Every performance rings true and is pitch perfect."
- Jane Dentinger, NY Theatre Guide
"The characters are affable (and played with gusto by a strong ensemble)."
- David Cote, Time Out NY
