"astute and uproarious romantic comedy"

"earnest and appealing and often funny"

"whip cracker of a tale...absolute delight"

"hilarious and ultimately touching"

"...can an arch conservative and an equally
arch liberal find romantic happiness together?"

"Wink, Wink, Nod.  James Carville and Mary Matalin must be ecstatic.  
A whole play written about them..."

The Body Politic is heavy on clever repartee...

“I was completely charmed”

“This is a smart play.”

“...surprising, well played and charming.”
