"The script is wonderfully literate; the acting is superb; the design is attractive."
"Mercurio's dialogue is so polished that you can't help but enjoy it for its efficiency and intelligence. You also have to like his many story-telling devices..."
"Trevor Keller's direction is kinetic, as fluid as Mercurio's script..."

"Peter Mercurio’s splendid new comedy about a soon-to-be-wed gay couple shows us that with a little ingenuity, even the aphorisms of the old American sage Ben Franklin can avail us!"
"Two Spoons puts gay love into perspective as it poses poignant questions while delivering non-stop laughs and penetrating social commentary; besides a skillful examination into the psychology of same-sex relationships, the play is replete with throwbacks to Benjamin Franklin, his maxims and his rather unique way of living."
"I give Two Spoons two thumbs way up!"

"With more gay couples taking on the challenges of parenthood, it's nice -- and rare -- to see a play that looks honestly at the role kids can play in putting a damper on romance."
— Chicago Tribune
"Two Spoons is a timely comedy that looks at the relationship between gay parents [and] does offer a thoughtful look at the pitfalls that gay marriage may present."
"Mercurio's new comedy has real insights into gay marriage..."
— TimeOut Chicago
