reviewer   michael sommers       backstage 
"performers are supposed to appreciate fine acting more than civilians, so i'd advise you to beg, borrow or steal any available ticket to "joe egg" jim dale and stockard channing are giving the best performances of their career. their teamwork makes for remarkable interaction that turns scripted dialogue into sounding like improvisation. their performances are a lesson and example to actors of every caliber."

reviewer    clive barnes        new york post
"welcome the arrival of "joe egg" starring the spectacular duo of stockard channing and jim dale. i have seen many people play the role of bri, but no one has quite encompassed its range, from rage to impotence, from mockery to despair, like dale. he is matched at every point by the wonderful loving miss channing. you won't see better performances than these two this season."
