“This bold, risky genre-bender is enjoying an exceptional world premiere production from the Road Theater Co…As she proved in last year’s triumphant “Four Places,” helmer Robin Larsen is brilliant at believably transforming polite conversation into gut-wrenching revelations of character.”

LA Times:
“Critic’s Choice: Die-hard romantics, fasten your seat belts. In Keith Huff’s offbeat, ever-intelligent “Pursued by Happiness”…comes to excruciating and mordantly funny life under Robin Larsen’s rigorous direction…”

Stage Scene LA:
“Huff’s decision to entrust The Road with his latest play proves a savvy one, from Robin Larsen’s pitch-perfect direction to the sextet of superb performances delivered by its quartet of actors.”

“Fortunately, director Robin Larsen’s marvelous modernist staging and an accomplished cast drive the show, wedding enigmatic naturalism to satiric comment.”
