"Mike Burstyn is a master of understatement. Boy, does he make playing the straight man to a trio of comic women look easy. Burstyn's Ira is likable and loveable. Even as we wonder how someone that successful could also be that naive, we just want to hug him."

"Mike Burstyn is a pip...he will make you laugh before he speaks a line, and once he starts talking, there's no end to the laughter. The chemistry of the entire cast is affected by his lively comic presence. Now the fabulously successful allergist moves about the set as if it were his home. We see how comfortable he is with his wife and she with him. He matter-of-factly throws caring glances toward Marjorie even as he pats his egocentric, do-gooder back. His comic timing is so in sinc with the other actors that this comedy is now seemless."
Joanne Greco Rochman, Stage Struck, New Haven
"Mike Burstyn is delightfully eccentric as the husband."
Steve Allen, KFUO-FM St.Louis
"Mike Burstyn is warm and very funny as Marjorie's long-suffering husband."
Chuck Lavazzi, KDHX-FM St.Louis
"As Ira, Marjorie's genial doctor-husband, Mike Burstyn conveys a casual narcissism."
Michael Grossberg, The Columbus Dispatch
"Burstyn and Harper share a good sense of comic timing."
J.Wynn Rousuck, The Baltimore Sun
"To create Ira, Mike Burstyn works precisely, an upright, soothing presence, making Ira good but not too good to be true."
Richard Eisenhardt, Chicago Street Wise
"Ira is a retired allergist who suffers from high self-esteem, but in Burstyn's smooth reading, he is at heart a decent and generous man."
Desmond Ryan, The Philadelphia Inquirer
