“Defies all expectations, telling the tale in the most lively, surreal and surprising ways imaginable. It flies by, feeling even shorter yet fuller than its 85 minutes. Linda Lavin’s wit is in full bloom. She has never seemed more vital, sly, and fearless.” Jesse Green, The New York Times

“Words like charming and whimsical and even downright funny aren’t ones you usually associate with a play about illness and death. In the case of Noah Diaz’s You Will Get Sick,
you might also add the word more than a little bit fey.” Robert Hofler, The Wrap
“Daniel K. Isaac and Linda Lavin are such a charming pair.” Jackson McHenry, New York Magazine
