So much fun that you barely notice the sincerity that they sneak in on you that grabs your heart and takes you dancing off to a joyful ending. ... full review

This show, "Come Back" totally blew me away. I didn't know what to expect. From the very first scene I was totally in. It was fun, funny, endearing, energetic. The actors were committed, hilarious and very convincing. This story of the relationship between an overpowering mother, Edie (brilliantly played by Amir Levi) and her adult son, Petey (exquisitely played by Demetris Hartman) is very cleverly written. Every aspect of it is very human. It is only augmented by the fact that they both work together in show biz. The push and pull of leaving the nest is at the same time very dramatic and very funny. It is handled with a lot of finesse. The music is beautiful, the voices are great, and the play on words and Broadway very wisely integrate... full review

I’ve watched Edie and Petey Stevenson sing their way through steamy scenes since they first appeared in a shorts show at the old Elephant Theatre over a decade ago. One of the reasons they’ve come back in so many forums is the humor, empathy and ingenuity of playwright Tony Foster. Amir Levi and Demetris Hartman launch Edie and Petey into comedy's stratosphere. Levi's legs are hurricanes of movement and emotion, and Hartman paints a color filled portrait of a young man who comes to realize his exasperating mother is also the best onstage partner he's ever had. Don't miss this show, because if this is the last time we will see Edie and Petey--and Levi and Hartman--together, it is indeed bittersweet. How many come backs does COME BACK! ... full review

***** FIVE STARS Not to be missed! The tight writing fires off joke after joke with waves of audience laughter that made the whole show feel like a party. The final moment, with the band and the actors dressed to the 9s, is worth the ticket price. What fun! Brush up on your Sondheim musicals, and get a ticket before they sell out! It was awesome!... full review
