The musical revue drawing on period material is ... a form well-suited for exploring the world of Hollywood in the 1930s ... A Day in Hollywood is ...a collage of songs and anecdotes ... A Night in the Ukraine is an unabashed tribute a Marx Brothers' pastiche that attempts to recreate the sort of entertainment found in thirties' films at their best and succeeds superbly. Dick Vosburgh's script is fast-moving appropriately zany and filled with good lines.

'A night of magic ... Classy sassy nostalgia combined with the zip and zap of the day after tomorrow ... The first part is a simple spoof on Hollywood prior to WWII ... This is great fun ... [Then] imagine Chekhov's one-act play The Bear as it might have been given by the Marx Brothers. It is simply pure madcap idiocy.' New York Post

These two one-act plays provide a double feature more hilarious than any presented in Hollywood's heyday.
