Blogcritics said of the anthology: This collection is a bountiful of pleasing oddities. Each work offers something worthwhile.... The collection runs the gamut of the most serious drama to the most irreverent topical mental trinkets.... Demastes returns and once again draws from works produced by some of Americas finest theater companies in an effort to capture the wide range of styles, topics, and regional tastes that typifies American theater. The compilation is slated to include works by John Guare, Neil LaBute, and A. R. Gurney, as well as contributions from a plethora of gifted, emerging playwrights.
