“Critic’s Pick! “Too Much Sun”, [starring] the remarkable Linda Lavin, opened on Sunday night in an astutely acted production that features Jennifer Westfeldt and sharp direction by Mark Brokaw. To watch Ms. Lavin is to see a veteran actress at the very top of her game. The entire cast is more than credible. Ms. Westfeldt, in particular, is terrific.” — Ben Brantley, New York Times 

“Lavin Shines brightly in “Too Much Sun”. Jennifer Westfeldt is excellent”. — Jocelyn Noveck, AP

“★ ★ ★ ★!  All the Silver trademarks are here—dragon mom, damaged daughter, sexual betrayal. But they emerge fresh in Mark Brokaw’s smart, delicate staging. Cheers.” - David Cote, Time Out New York

“The interaction that draws blood is the mother-daughter face-off.  Indie film fave Westfeldt, who exhibited grace under fire earlier this season in Steven Soderbergh’s production of “The Library,” holds her own nicely here. Even as Kitty protests how much she loves Audrey, she’s seething with rage over a lifetime of neglect by a self-absorbed mother who sent her understudy to her daughter’s wedding.  Audrey tops her horror stories with a few of her own, so let’s call this battle a draw. — Marilyn Stasio, Variety

“Under Brokaw’s steady direction, this ensemble registers powerful performances. The show floats along on Silver’s considerable wit and the cast’s ability to deliver it with flawless timing.”  – Zachary Stewart, Theatermania 

“Nicky Silver [creates] a distinctive, instantly recognizable world. Kitty is [played with] expert exasperation by Jennifer Westfeldt” – Brendan Lemon, Financial Times

“One of Mr. Silver’s funniest plays to date! Director Mark Brokaw extracts outstanding performances from the gifted ensemble. Linda Lavin is wonderfully acerbic. Jennifer Westfeldt gives a poignant portrayal of Kitty.” – Scott Harrah, Stagezine.com
