    A funny, exciting, theatrical piece of writing that, *while reading it*, makes you sit forward, laugh, and cry. This play is perfect for a theater that is looking forward and wants to be on the cutting edge of theatre in this country. If you are an innovator in this industry, READ THIS PLAY, and then PROGRAM IT.

    This play is specific, funny, goofy, and heartbreaking. Mora has such a unique voice, and is able to make an audience laugh with one or two words. The dialogue is beautifully crafted, yet as messy as people talk. The magic in this play extends beyond the obvious and into the small human things we do for people we care about. This play encourages you to look forward at what an experience at the theater can be.

    I love this play. The characters and dialogue jump right off the page. Madison captures the mine field that is adult communication; the inherent dangers in trying to figure out what you want, what you need, and who you are.

    Loved seeing this on Zoom early in the pandemic as part of Pittsburgh Public Theater's PlayTime Series. A great play for actors, great dialogue, moving and funny.

    This is the way you adapt a massive story. It's fun, it's theatrical, and it's funny as all hell. Sock puppets and sword fights: count me in.

    Mora V. Harris is genuinely funny. Her characters and her dialogue are truly funny, so adapting Cyrano makes complete sense. Mora brings this classic into our age and plays with virtual reality in a clear and accessible way. It is fun. It is touching. It makes me laugh out loud.
