“Uproarious, “The Allergist’s Wife” earns its wall-to-wall laughs.” “Mr. Busch has swum straight into the mainstream and stays comfortably afloat there.”
Ben Brantley, New York Times
“An intelligently funny and satirically relevant uptown comedy.”
John Simon, New York Magazine
“Charles Busch comes of age as a comic playwright of the first rank.”
