"Burns is a show stealer, coming across as very likeable and relatable. It’s been a while since I’ve seen a comedic soliloquy as epic as his left-at-home-alone love letter scene." - Mooney on Theatre

"One standout moment, a long stream-of-consciousness-style monologue itemizing aspects of a standard modern courtship performed by Wayne Burns, is very unsettling in how accurate yet bleak it is." - NOW Magazine

"Baby-cheeked Burns, in particular, is excellent as the shrewd and seemingly disaffected teen, who has been taken advantage of but doesn’t view himself as a victim." - The Torontoist
