"Funny, charming and oddly affecting...director Lauren English captures every nuance of this delectable comedy; she’s a perfect match for Spector’s sly sense of humor and deep empathy for the human condition in the age of anxiety."
- Jean Schiffman, San Francisco Examiner
"The corkscrew escalation of the one-of-a-kind production “Good. Better. Best. Bested.” delivers hysteria on a luxurious golden platter. Audiences should strap in, because the comedy provides one hell of a ride...glistening, enthusiastic, satiric and wild" - Sophie Kim, Daily Cal
"Are we ready for the conversation that Spector is designing in his surreal and satirical vision of Las Vegas at the brink? Maybe it’s the Next Big Thing."
-Tyler Jeffreys, Theatritus
"Its dialogue is so crisp, its characters so compelling and real, that I was happy to sit back and enjoy watching humanity take a nose dive into the pile of glass shards of the broken dream of America that is Las Vegas."
- Patrick Thomas, Talkin' Broadway
"It’s an entertaining, fast-moving, emotional roller coaster of a production, shifting effectively between episodes eliciting side-splitting laughter, serious reflection, shock, and horror, all punctuated by an uneasy sense of sadness and despair that looms over even some of the most awkward and laugh-out-loud moments in this multi-dimensional comedy...Spector has crafted his characters with empathy and depth"
- Nicole Singley, Aisle Seat Review
