Reviews

"Mr. Wolfe is the kind of satirist who takes no prisoners. The shackles of the past have been defied by Mr. Wofe's humor, and it's a most liberating revolt." -Frank Rich, The New York Times

"Brings forth a bold new voice that is bound to shake up blacks and whites with separate-but-equal impartiality. True satire." -Jack Kroll, Newsweek

"A sophisticated satirical, seriously funny show that spoofs white and black America alike." -Johnb Simon, New York

"Has the potential to bring to black theater the type of nasty, naked racial revelation once found only in Richard Pryor monologues or Funkadelic albums." -Greg Tate, The Village Voice
