Review Quotes


"The play's unabashed cleverness, in turn, produces non stop laughs. That  is, laughs that are genuine. Laughs that are tart and pungent. Laughs  that catch you by surprise. Laughs that keep you reeling."

"Linda Purl offers an infectious comic performance that unfolds with wit, imagination, verve and marvelously orchestrated elan."  -  From the Desk of Jim R, Take 2, Column 70,  


"Love Quest" is a contemporary, original play that is deliberately cheeky and wonderfully detailed. It sparkles. It delights. It cajoles. The performances are full of dash and great humor."

- Jim Ruocco - From the Desk of Jim R

"Linda Purl plays an often-exasperated  Kate with body language that's spot on. Her reactions to uncomfortable  situations that are shocking or frustrating to Kate are priceless."

-  By Don Church and Tony Schillaci, Critics On The Aisle 



"There are some really engaging scenes that highlight the show. One scene is Kate imagining she is in a boxing ring, fighting against all of the losers she has met on her dates. She delivers recaps of their inept one-liners and come-ons and then knocks them out. It’s an especially pleasing moment, and one extremely well-acted by Purl." 


"there’s a line… that is sheer poetry. I can’t imagine a woman’s heart not melting a bit at hearing this." -  From Geary Danihy
