    Engaging, enchanting, and theatrically exciting, Steven G. Martin's "The Subtle, Sublime Transformation of Benny V. is pure delight from start to finish. I was caught up in the world Martin created, a world populated with wonderful, sharply drawn characters whirling around the adorable Benny V., an everyman to love, root for, and cheer as he realizes his own self-worth. A beautiful play.

    An engaging and beautifully written play about mid-life crisis and transformation. About realizing one's self-worth and deciding to be happy. Highly recommend!

    Benny V. is adorable in his bumbling way, and his transformation feels so real and is so earned, I root for him throughout this earnest exploration into his used-up should-have-expired life until he allows himself to be changed! The world of this play holds so much wonder and awe that I am charmed, my impatience put on hold, my empathy stretched, and my heart warmed!
