Reviews

City Pages, May 2013. “A stimulus package of urgent laughs courtesy of playwright Sam Graber…bringing chaos to the Federal Reserve, an engaging exploration of financial fallacies!”
From The Back Row, May 2013. “Graber is a sharp and witty writer with the dexterity to both humanize a concept through characters while still presenting an engaging person on stage…his ability to create different voices is keen, and he is also able to pen a searing, blistering insult better than any modern playwright of whom I’m aware.”

May 2015, Abstract Sentiment Theatre Co
