"As the soon-to-be-disappeared patriarch Beverly Weston, Charles Leggett opens the show with a drawling monologue that gently lures the audience into his family's drama. 'My wife takes pills, and I drink,' he flatly explains. 'That's the bargain we've struck.' It's an understated performance, but Leggett's quietude toys with audience expectations before his Technicolor family explodes onto the stage. All 13 actors play their outsized characters with zeal, and it's almost unfair to single any one out for praise. But life isn't fair. Shellie Shulkin as the downer-addicted, acid-tongued matriarch, Violet Weston, all but steals the show. During her first entrance, stumbling across the set and garbling her lines, Shulkin relentlessly lurches right up to the line of over-the-top without ever crossing it." (Goldy)
