REVIEWS

TEN BEST PLAYS OF 2010 - Timeout Chicago

 

“The Wedding has the raw energy of a boxing match; this riotous production manages to be at once thrilling, tender and very funny… What makes the production such a joy is the accumulation of stunning theatrical moments offered by this tightly chaotic ensemble…[The Wedding is]…like a deranged, avant-garde episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Wedding offers a vertiginous look at the comical depths to which a social gathering can plunge.”  

- Timeout Chicago (Full Review)

 

“TUTA's winter show is quite the enjoyably quirky 90 minutes.…a cross between the song stylings of Kurt Weill, "The Wedding Singer" and "Mamma Mia," and they are exceedingly funny.
