TimeOut New York: Four Stars and Critic's Pick!
5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche was a cult hit in Chicago last year, and arrives at the Fringe gleaming with comic polish.
New York Theatre Review: FringeNYC Review
For the sake of New York audiences in desperate need of smart satire and strong female pieces, 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche deserves a longer run after the festival. This show could be a downtown hit in the upcoming season.

One of the funniest shows to ever grace FringeNYC - one of the finest comedic ensembles currently on any NYC stage.

Expect to laugh. Expect to laugh again. Expect to laugh some more. Expect to laugh even more. Expect to laugh, laugh, laugh and then hear male audience members proudly proclaim “I AM A LESBIAN!” … what??

...an interesting balance between period political drama and laugh-out-loud exaggerated scenarios that works rather well.
