Chicago Tribune: Review
[A] delectable portrait of sublimated Sapphism...New Colony's show dishes up high-spirited theatrical comfort food with a bit of a saucy kick.
Time Out Chicago: Review: Expanded from an award-winning sketch, this wonderfully ridiculous scenario delivers what it promises.
Four out of Five Stars! If the phrase devised work inspires fear, confusion or eye-rolling, check your preconceptions at the door. Expanded after an award-winning run last year in Collaboraction's Sketchbook X, this ensemble piece is smart, sharp and hysterically funny.
Your relationship with quiche will never be the same again.

Talkin' Broadway: Review
5 Lesbians is a sort of Fail Safe as if written by Lillian Hellman, but much more fun. "Saturday Night Live" should be able to sustain their 10-minute sketches as well as The New Colony does...
Chicago Theatre Addict: Review: The New Colony���s ���5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche��� hits the spot
These fantastic five performers (who each had a hand in devising the show, thanks to The New Colony's uniquely collaborative approach to producing new work) make up one of the hardest working casts in town. You laugh because they commit so wholeheartedly to the wacky world they've established.
ChicagoNow: Review "5 Lesbians Eating A Quiche": Gut-busting Perfection!
What's funnier than funny? 5 LESBIANS EATING A QUICHE! I know it sounds like a joke but I'm serious! I can't stop laughing at these lesbians.
Chicago Theater Beat: Review: Five Lesbians Eating A Quiche (The New Colony)
Quiche is brilliantly funny and a delight to pick up on the film and cultural references. The play is directed by Sarah Gitenstein, who gives the actors the room to develop their characters. It is smoothly paced and has some great holy sh#! moments. Just like quiche, this show is meant to be shared with friends!
