"The opening fight scene is probably the most inventive piece of stage direction I’ve seen." The Royale (Seattle Gay Scene)
"The battle is invigorating to behold...This is largely due to the production’s choreography, which is set to a pulse-quickening staccato rhythm that comes and goes throughout. The fighters move with a seamlessness befitting their roles, though the stylized pantomime of fighting here demands more from them than the slip, dip, and drag of the boxer." The Royale (Seattle Weekly)
