"Part ‘comedy of manners’, part ‘manners of comedy’ peppered with convincingly plausible ‘real-life’ individuals, ‘The Wonder of it All’ begs us to consider if there truly is a ‘redemptive power of love’ given what life throws at us."
- Joe Szekeres, OnStage Blog

"The [sic] is a very appealing comedy not just because of its plethora of witty lines but because of its insight into how molehills can become mountains over time in any relationship."
- Christopher Hoile, Stage Door
