“David Lefkowitz’s The Miracle of Long Johns is a hilarious and touching tour de force. Lefkowitz’s memory of his most embarrassing night as a theater critic will have you in stitches.”
– Iris Dorbian, journalist and author of “Great Producers: Visionaries of American Theater,” NYC, 10/15

“The show . . . won the award for Best Non-Fiction Script; it deserved the accolade.  The greatest strength of the show is Lefkowitz’s wit, which is supported and enhanced by his command of the English language.  I learned that he is hopeful of finding a  producer to take this show on.  I genuinely hope he succeeds.”
