Media Reviews

“What sustains American Wee-Pie as more than a disposable confection is its underlying respect for the value of small acts of kindness and nourishment.” –Chicago Tribune

 “At turns the quirkiest of comedies, the deftest of satires and the most rueful blend of crushed hearts, diminished dreams and nostalgia.” –Chicago Sun-Times

 “American Wee-Pie’s snappy lines speak comedy and bring laughs, but the big life values are here, too.” –The News-Gazette

 “A good play manages to weave its message in between the bright colors and funny lines, and American Wee-Pie does this with humor and heart.” Royal Oak Tribune

 “The need to be creative as a means to personal self-fulfillment is vividly presented via quirky comedy.” –Chicago Critic
