TheaterMania weighs in on OMBA

"Whether writing about Charles Van Doren and the quiz show scandals, New York Jews trying to assimilate into Orange County's more laid back lifestyle, children trying to come to grips with the legacy of their parents, or the locker rooms of professional baseball, Tony Award winner Richard Greenberg has consistently struck a chord with audiences. His latest play, Our Mother's Brief Affair, getting its world premiere at South Coast Repertory, is one of his simplest and best efforts yet. ...Director Pam MacKinnon and her cast deftly belt out all of the playwright's many riffs out of the park. The result is a thrill ride of verbiage --intellectual, touching, bitter, loving, and fascinating."
