With their reputations on the line, they’ll tackle any request, no matter how impossible, and any client, no matter how unreasonable.

  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF Craving for Travel

    It’s Not Just a Job, It’s an Adventure. In a Dying Industry, Sure. But Still.

    Neil Genzlinger

    January 27, 2014: Considering what a lightweight piece of twaddle it is, Craving for Travel at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater, sure gives you a lot to think about. Can a piece so blatantly promotional rightly be called theater? If I laugh at any of it, should I feel guilty? If this play succeeds, can similar works about elevator operators, owners of independent bookstores and other imperiled jobs be far behind?

    Not first class, but still gets you there

    Judd Hollander

    January 28, 2014: Sophomoric at times and perhaps more suited to the format of a television sitcom, Craving for Travel still offers a lot of fun. A world premiere of a two-person, thirty-character comedy by Greg Edwards and Andy Sandberg, the show is now revving its engines at the Peter J. Sharp Theater on 42nd Street.

  • THEATERMANIA REVIEW OF Craving for Travel

    Tales from inside the travel industry are on display in Andy Sandberg and Greg Edwards' two-person play.

    Hayley Levitt

    January 26, 2014: Workplace shenanigans make for entertaining theater. Protesting pajama-gamers; ladder-climbing window washers; even a group of ladies working the monotonous 9-to-5 grind keep us riveted. True, all of these folks had a score of catchy tunes to keep their audiences happy — one amenity that Craving for Travel does not pack in its bottomless suitcase of zany characters and thick accents. But not even the great Frank Loesser could turn this trite two-hander into a compelling comic profile of the travel industry.

    January 24, 2014: You’ve heard of advertorials; meet the advertheatrical. You see, Greg Edwards and Andy Sandberg were commissioned to write this two-hander about the luxury-travel industry by…a luxury-travel agent. Very game actors Michele Ragusa and Thom Sesma play a pair of amicably divorced travel agents, and also the dozens of clients, hotel clerks and fellow industry types they talk to on the phone.

  • DC THEATRE SCENE REVIEW OF Craving for Travel

    Richard Seff

    January 27, 2014: A leading luxury travel consultant named Jim Strong has put together and produced a 75 minute sparkling commercial about his field of expertise. It’s called Craving For Travel, which happens to be the name of the app he’s invented for the iPhone and iPad. It’s not a play, it’s an out and out entertainment, and would make ideal audition material for two bright comic actors named Michele Ragusa and Thom Sesma*, who should be signed up immediately for “Saturday Night Live”.
