Reviews from the Panel.Animal run: here, here and here

"Cheerfully obscene...the company obsesses over the filthiness of consumption. While individual characters slash and stab each other, collectively they skewer American greed. Accompanied by Kurt Weill-style pounding piano, Sandwich would have made Bertolt Brecht proud (if Brecht had had a plushy fetish). Stab whom you have to for a ticket: Sandwich is play-making at its meatiest."

-Helen Shaw, Time Out New York

"With its bacon sizzling on a hotplate, anti-meat-eating plaints followed by mock-gory bunny-bashings, musical knives, piano-playing buffalo and militaristic armadillo, Sandwich is a casually madcap creation that isn't just funny and thought-provoking but funny about its thoughts and need to provoke. It's deceptively crisp, remarkably tight, cagily convoluted and curiously refreshing."

-Robert Hurwitt, SF Chronicle
