Rave Reviews for "Do Black Patent Leather Shoes Really Reflect Up?"

Gary Puleo, The Times Herald: "Dramateurs triumph in 'Patent Leather Shoes.' Excruciatingly funny and wistful, often painful, but always madly engaging, the Dramateurs' production captures both the heartbreaking and comic aspects of the most trying moments of adolescence."
