BWW Reviews: IMMEDIATE FAMILY Rises Above Sitcom at the Taper
by Don Grigware - May 5, 2015

It is rich yet rare to find a new American play that is at once terribly funny, terribly real and utterly demanding of one's attention. Immediate Family is such a play; it's fiercely original way at looking at an American black dysfunctional family is both heartwarming and completely enjoyable.
