“Ben Butler, must see thought provoking, Broadway Quality entertainment.”
– Kathy Carpenter, LA Splash Magazine
“Thanks to canny writing, thoughtful direction by David Ellenstein and committed performances by its four-member cast, “Ben Butler” is not only funny, it’s also an entertaining character study of two men whose lives intersected in real life.”
– Pam Kragen, San Diego Union~Tribune
“Richard Strand’s smart, slick and delightfully entertaining play, which is receiving a superb production at North Coast Repertory Theatre, under the astute direction of David Ellenstein.”
– Pat Launer, Times of San Diego
“It’s not only a gem but exactly the kind of fare that the North Coast Repertory Theatre audience loves to devour. It’s thoughtful, smart, funny, and can be put on a single set.”
– Bill Eadie, San Diego Story
“Don’t miss this delightful, thought-provoking, and most of all funny take on an incident that actually happened at the beginning of the American Civil War.”
– Jean Lowerison, San Diego Stage and Screen
“An engaging work brimming with humor and intelligence. ‘Ben Butler’ showcases fine acting, skillful direction and a thought provoking story. The Civil War doesn’t usually suggest humor, but this work is a playwright’s tour de force with verbal sparring reminiscent of Neil Simon’s best.”
– Christene Meyers, whereiscookie.com
“A flawless cast gifts two hours of suspense, laughter, and reflection. It is a must-see.”
– Alejandra Enciso-Dardashti, From Another Zero
“Never before was the War Between the States portrayed with such clever wit and compassion. Ben Butler tells a provocative, engaging story of a bygone era, yet a stellar cast led by Richard Baird makes it relevant today.”
Eva Trieger, Jewish World
