    Michael Hollinger's clever Cold War farce wraps up a number of things I'm a sucker for onstage: fast paced comedy, quick costume and character changes, noir homages and ludicrous dialogue delivered with a straight face. Given a good cast and a great set, "Red Herring" is a fantastic night at the theatre.

    This is the first play I've ever read and im glad I got to start with such a great, funny play. It was hilarous and full of hopeless romantics. I hope I either get to see or tech for this show one day.

    Hilarious!A rampage of crazy larger-than-life cartoonish characters. I really enjoy a play that has a vision and barrels at it with guns blazing. Hollinger's play doesn't shy away from the ridiculous and will get everyone involved in insane commie-chasing antics.

    What fun!! This fast-paced Cold War parody is the second of Hollinger's plays that I have read, and he is fast becoming a favorite.
