"There is no doubt in my mind that Kitchen Dance will have its many nights and many matinees on many stages in many theatres. Kitchen Dance is timeless, a tour de force for actors and appealing to all ages."

---Phil Bruns, actor and director.


Kitchen Dance

. . ."KItchen Dance," written by Ron Robinson . . ., is a crashing success. I loved it. . . .

The play makes you laugh, then cry but before you get too wet faced, something humorous is done or said to break the sadness. . . .

The play has a heavy theme treated lightly.

Alan and Jennifer were so real. You know someone like them, everyone does.

It was a delight. Don't miss "Kitchen Dance."

---Pat Beyers, Pipestone County Star.

"Kitchen Dance," as any worthwhile play does, involved not only the actors but and audience . . . who laughed and cried and did everything but climb onstage to take part themselves.

"Kitchen Dance," in other words, was an unqualified success.

In his program notes, Robinson writes: "Wouldn't it be a good thing if real life followed art in this: that laughter becomes a victory over otherwise invincible enemies? May whatever humor you find in this play arm you for such battles."

Monday night's audience, if nothing else, came away well armed. . . .

But the most credit should be given to Micki Varro, Schuller, Bruns and Robinson, who have combined to create a marvelously real, funny-sad piece of life that almost anyone is able to look at and say, "I've been there."

Robinson's glib one-liners are reminiscent of Neil Simon in his better days, but without the brittleness.The dialogue is uncannily real. . . .

---Betsy Gerboth, Argus Leader, 1983.

With Kitchen Dance, Robinson offers a look at what it means to be vulnerable. His script that's often funny and insightful makes a case for opening up, for caring, for touching someone, even if it's only for a little while.

Ann Grauvogl, Argus Leader, 1990.
