"Mr. Grimm seeks to do a little restoration work of his own, inserting great chunks of fresh dirt into every nook, cranny and convention of a traditional form…Impressive…An authentically sharp wit…Rich material for high-style playing." —NY Times. "An extremely stylish (and exuberantly filthy) sex farce…This is an orgy to which all are graciously invited." —Variety. "A queer-feminist gloss on the Restoration farce…abundant verbal delights…a new play for the old canon." —Time Out NY. "…A delightfully bawdy comedy with a sentimental streak…MEASURE FOR PLEASURE takes the past and makes it pertinent to the present." —Associated Press. "David Grimm's gender-inclusive modern sex comedy in Restoration bawdry is endearing and audacious." —NY Newsday.
