A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Gynecologic Oncology Unit at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center of New York City

“Dickerman as Don is the poster child for giving up… does a nice job straddling the worlds of Karla,
for whom he lusts, and Marcie, to whom he relates.”

Review: Atlanta Theatre Club hits comedic stride with “A Funny Thing Happened”

“This weekend we saw the Atlanta Theatre Club’s production of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Gynecologic Oncology Unit at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center of New York City. The play is an honest glimpse into the lives of two strangers who meet because their Mothers share a room to receive treatment for cancer. Funny, touching, heart-wrenching, honest – we strongly recommend this show.”
–Georgia Theatre Guide

“… one of the strongest ensembles I have seen in Atlanta. Not just for one of the smaller theatre companies here in town – but for any of them. Douglas Dickerman’s  is a wonderful stuttering and lost Don – whose dying mother shares the room with Karla’s…. Calibrating a performance for the specific venue has become it’s own bit of craft making and these actors do it expertly.”
