“The name Jerry Mayer has become synonymous with comedy – and with good cause… A brilliant – and very funny – portrait of real life… Jerry Mayer keeps the laughs flowing…Director Chris DeCarlo has a knack for keeping the pace fast and funny…Eric Jon’s set, lights, and video design are a joy to behold. The audience is lucky indeed to have the opportunity to join in the Jerry-Mayer-A-Thon. Clearly, the cast and crew of the Playhouse have a very special knack and light touch which is just right for Mayer’s hilarious look at life and love.” splashmag.com. Read the full review here!
“Jerry Mayer has gone and done it again (as those of you who saw Almost Perfect and Aspirin & ELEPHANTS would expect). Absolutely side-splitting humor. The audience was roaring throughout, and so was I. Jerry Mayer is surely one of the funniest writers alive, and he is in his best form here. The sexual innuendos are witty, the business of aging is handled with great humor and understanding, and the human condition is explored with a fresh eye. This is a marvelous evening in the theater – you can’t do better!” The Good Life
“Mayer, an old hand at turning a comic phrase, keeps the humor constant, but he has been careful not to sacrifice humanity for hilarity.” LA Magazine
“Warm of heart, quick of wit and especially enjoyable!” Daily Variety
“Full of laughter and tears. A Love Affair is just that – the story of a marriage with its many peaks and valleys, a subtle statement about the difference between the sexes and the common ground that makes it possible for them to live together in comparative harmony.“ Culver City News
“Another hit! Chris DeCarlo’s direction of this funny comedy is impeccable,
adding another success to his long list of credits.” The Enterprise
“Steeped in the stuff that makes the world go round and spiced with the laughter that keeps it whirling, it’s a memory play with an ardent present and a promising future that speaks to the youth in us as loudly as it does to the well-over-thirtysomething in the rest of us. Expect some afterthoughts, some forethoughts, some insights, some ah-hahs, some tears, but mostly a lot of laughter when the past meets the future in the present in an affair you’ll remember.” Theatre News
