What the Critics Said:

  • “The Last Schwartz is rollicking, sad, shocking, goofy, and thoughtful. It is comic drama firing on all cylinders, a superb work of theater by a playwright in full command of her considerable gift for character and dialogue. It’s the hit of the festival and an absolute must-see, a funny, wonderful, rewarding evening of theater.”
  • “The Last Schwartz is that increasingly rare phenomenon in American theater: It has a discernable plot.  And that plot revolves around real characters who learn and grow and break things and fix them and that compel the audience to care about them.” The Washington Times (
