“GHOST QUARTET slyly addresses the questions of why we want to believe in ghosts and feel the need to keep talking about them. And I promise you, you will believe by the evening’s end...one of the most ingenious and affecting finales I’ve come across in years.” –The New York Times
“The brilliantly inventive Dave Malloy's theater songs make you blue like the sky: sad but high. Listening to his brand of emo-pop regret laced with cosmic hope, it’s like you’re watching a spectacular sunrise after a night of whiskey and lame flirting.” – Time Out New York
