" astonishing performance by John Emmet Tracy... With his sublime agility with words and voice, and a beguiling physical presence, somehow Tracy makes it all darkly amusing... Tracy is one of those rare actors who could recite the phone book— if we still had them."

Colin Thomas

The Georgia Straight

"Because John Emmet Tracy is alert to every nuance of the language, including its dark humour, his performance is a miracle of detail— and gamesome sexiness. Everybody who loves acting should see this piece of work."

Ann Forry

Casting Director

"Top notch actor, unbelievable!"
