The play [Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally] is perched at the intersection of the digital and corporeal worlds — spheres that the director, Ianthe Demos, melds in a supple, fast-paced, highly physical production. Employing her five dexterous actors, each of whom also has a principal role, as a chorus to tell the story of the romance, Ms. Demos imbues the production with the sleek seductiveness of good tech design (the soft-glow lighting is by Mike Riggs, the set by James Hunting) and the pulsing warmth of passion." —The New York Times, Laura Collins-Hughes
