"Long has turned comedy into an absurdist romp that is very, very funny ... the climax is a lulu and a wow, and it tore the house down, and I don't think the Marine Corps is likely to use it for recruiting purposes."
Nels Nelson, Philadelphia Daily News
"Long has concocted a religious metaphor that is ludicrous on its face but which is theatrical as all get-out."
Bernard Weiner, San Francisco Chronicle
"The play is a harrowing as well as hilarious series of conflicts ... The Virgin Molly is not so much a mystery as a miracle, when a leap of faith creates a flashy and most starling outcome."
Robert Taylor, The Oakland Tribune
"Mr. Long finds comedy in contradiction ... he almost raises quirkiness to an idiosyncratic art."
Mel Gussow, The New York Times
"It's a sweetly goofy comedy about the insanity of trying to adjudicate 'that which cannot be adjudicated.'"
Aileen Jacobson, New York Newsday
"Long is a witty and audacious playwright, jumping headlong from gritty reality to mystical exaltation. The wonder of it is not that he dares the audience to make the leap of faith with him but that we make it."
Judith Green, San Jose Mercury News
"The hero of Quincy Long's offbeat and transcendently silly boot camp tale is a lanky Southern recruit in the No Time for Sergeants tradition, a sublimely innocent hillbilly whose very naivete and eagerness to please make him into a confrontation with authority just waiting to happen. And that confrontation ... makes for a delightfully surreal and iconoclastically epiphanic comedy."
Robet Hurwitt, Bay Area Express
"It's a moving piece of theatre about innocence, intimidation, prejudice, fear, and in a strange way, friendship."
Julie Pedigo, Martinez, Contra Costa Co. News-Gazette
