- "This was a great and challenging play to put on. It was great to have so much audience interaction with the actors. The one tip to remember is that even though the real body is not dead, you have to act like there is a dead body on stage."
- Review by Roberta J. Lillie, Bennington Community Theater, Bennington, Vt.
- ""Audience participation murder mystery" is a good descriptor of this play within a play. Our audiences had a great time at our dinner theater. Good food and then being accused of murder!"
- Review by Margaret Dennis, Newburgh Community Theatre, Newburgh, Ind.
- "In true Pat Cook fashion, this show was delightful, complicated and intense. This was a play within a play so six of the actors had to create two different characters. It is also an audience participation show. A very different type of work for these actors. The audiences loved it. It was an excellent comedy with lots of laughter involved."
- Review by Wendy Hassemer, Española's MainStreet Theatre, Española, N.M.
