★★★½ "Those 'Old Jews Telling Jokes' have excellent timing. Its top-drawer, all-Chicago cast — Gene Weygandt with that big, funny hair, the knockout Renee Matthews in fine mother-in-law fettle, the hilariously panicked Tim Kazurinsky, the impishly denying Dara Cameron and the carefully disciplined Alex Goodrich — are all charming, empathetic and funny. The piece is slick, well-cast, smartly directed by Marc Bruni (who never overplays his hand nor lets his comedians get silly), carefully curated and edited by Peter Gethers and Daniel Okrent (few of the gags fall flat), and, at 80 minutes, wisely determined not to overstay its welcome. One could argue it traffics in stereotypes, I suppose. But this is a warm, inclusive, affirmative show and one could not make such an argument with a laugh." - Chris Jones
