"Even before the triumph of the musical "Nine," Mario Fratti’s plays consistently have demonstrated how an émigré playwright can create dramas and comedies that combine European and American sensibilities as this anthology amply illustrates. If Fratti stands apart from other dramatists, it is because his plays are infused with an American’s moral indignation and impatience tempered by a European’s tolerance and detachment."
- Carolyn Balducci, author, playwright, literary translator, critic
