"Entertaining and fun. A satisfyingly dark look at this thing we call love." —

Love/Sick brings to light the complexity of communication and what it means to not only love someone else, but yourself as well …Truly beautiful” ~

"A dark, amusing look at romance … strikes just the right balance between wisdom and whimsy … light, bright, anti-romantic, and engaging” ~ The Hartford Courant

“In the nine vignettes that make up [the] play, couples meet [or] break apart or learn to love each other more…the jokes here are easygoing and snark-free" ~ The New York Times

“Sometimes playwright John Cariani looks at the world — actually the worlds — of love and relationships through rose-colored glasses. Just as often he views those worlds through lenses tinted a middling-to-dark-gray or maybe a jaundiced yellow … While poking fun at the happily-ever-after notion by means of a strong dose of happily-never-after, Cariani shoots his cockeyed valentines with a quiver full of funny lines. He knows how to keep audiences laughing while passing along disappointing news" ~ The Huffington Post
