"The idea of two squabbling brothers, a rabbi and a famous iconoclastic novelist, suggests certain amiable cliches and "the brothers berg," a new comedy by richard abrons at HERE in the South Village covers all of them and a few more besides."
"The Brothers Berg" is an interesting and provocative first play by Richard Abrons."
"...a provocative play of ideas, the kind that is in too short supply.."
