Marvelously Macabre…one wild, madcap romp…They may wanna be ghosts, but these apparitions are guaranteed to liven up your summer.
— -Kris Vire, Chicago Sun-Times
Heartfelt, hilarious, and deceptively resonant for our overstimulated ADD age.
— Dmitry Samarov, Chicago Reader
Immensely pleasurable…the cast of this Chicago premiere production brings Malloy’s score to dazzling life….Malloy’s singular dramatic flair and impatience with cliché are well-served.
— Alex Huntsberger Time Out Chicago
It’s such a pleasure to see four such gifted young performers...Ghost Quartet deserves an extended run.
— Jonathan Abarbanel, Windy City Times
A hauntingly bizarre delight...the level of musicianship present in this space is mind-blowing...these four voices in combination are a musical match made in heaven.
— Anna DeNoia, Chicagoland Musical Theatre
Joyfully eerie...It is without a doubt the most inventive and unusual show of the year so far.
— Karen Topham, Chicago OnStage
