“Buoyant, witty comedy... A deliciously verbal comedy of manners.” – Portland Phoenix
“Delightful... thoroughly engaging and highly entertaining... [brings]
home the message that female resourcefulness, when called upon, can be
an art form in itself.” – Portland Press Herald
“Breathtakingly stunning... Taking its inspiration from Jane Austen, this 21st-century work has all the eloquence of an early 19th-century classic, as it explores the intricate, timeless mating games that seem as relevant today as they did more than 200 years ago.” – Broadway World
“Rob Urbinati’s Lady Susan captures the essence of Jane Austen’s story, as well as her humor. Today’s women can easily understand that Lady Susan ‘seduces and schemes’ because she has no options – she cannot get a job or own property. The plight of a penniless widow trying to make a life for herself and her daughter is effectively conveyed with sympathy and biting wit. I enjoyed Jane Austen’s Lady Susan very much!” – Carolyn Jack, The Jane Austen Society of North America
