NEW CITY, Nina Mtez…The hilarious, highly dysfunctional
family at the center of the Wal*Mart-ians, are a Jerry Springer
producer's wet dream… THE WINDY CITY TIMES, Rick Reed…I
don't know whether to laud this bizarre play with accolades like
brilliant, fiendishly original, and thought-provoking…so
I'll stick my neck out here as a critic and come down on the side
of brilliance... CHICAGO TRIBUNE, Chris Jones…Young's down-and-dirty
production has many laugh’s…THE READER, Jenn Goddu…a
fitfully funny farce…ST@TIC ART, L. Joy…splendid,
humorous and clever! …one of the most entertaining performances

act) produced by The Side Project Theatre Company Chicago, 2004.
REVIEWS: WINDY CITY TIMES, Rick Reed …Critic's
Pick! Searing, poignant, acerbic, surreal, and thought-provoking
theater (by) an astonishing array of talent...in Steven Young's
Boiling Frog, it's September of 2001 and an arrogant boss and
his fed up secretary carry on their power struggles and thankless
tasks, ignoring warning signals even after the planes have struck.”
THE CHICAGO READER, Rebecca L Ford ... another provocative success
... fleeting insights into failure and desire.
