"Though the territoryʼs familiar, Marian Fontanaʼs Falling Short is a touching and hilarious vignette — one of the highlights of Series B of “Summer Shorts,” the annual festival of one-acts by new and established playwrights." - Frank Scheck, New York Post

"By turns touching and amusing, Pine Cone Moment may be the only work to use “The Lonely Goatherd” from “The Sound of Music” in a deeply romantic way." - Frank Scheck, New York Post
