THE WORD ABOUT ALMOST, MAINE

"ALMOST, MAINE is a series of nine amiably absurdist vignettes about love,

with a touch of good-natured magic realism...witty, romantic, unsentimental."  

- The New York Times
 
"Sweet, poignant, and witty. Nearly perfect. ALMOST, MAINE's charm is real.

[It] packs wit,earns its laughs and, like love, surprises you."  
- New York Daily News
 
"Mega-hit ALMOST, MAINE lands somewhere between Norman Rockwell and Our Town.

Unabashedly unhip. There is no pretense of an edge here-the show offers

a sweetness and decency that's become rare at the theater."
