NYtheatre.com "... A sharp political show written by a young female comedian. Friedman's brutally funny and unique view of the absurdity of our world makes her a comic force to be reckoned with. She offers a razor-sharp satire that joyfully skewers the American Dream in all of its commercialized glory. Keep an eye out for her standup as well as her future theatrical endeavors."
Time Out NY Theater "...As smart as it is amusing...Tsunamis, illegal immigration, child labor, global warming: Nothing is safe or sacred in the deliciously wicked spoof that is The Refugee Girls Revue."
