“The Roommate tugs at the heartstrings as much as it tickles the funny bone.” – Louisville Magazine
“Jen Silverman’s The Roommate, a new play about isolation, second chances, and the consequences of our choices, is as tragic as they come – and it’s a tragedy that subtly grows beneath peals of uproarious laughter.” – Broadway World
