You’ve Got Hate Mail by ‘The Masters of Modern Farce’ – NYT
Called “the masters of modern farce” by The New York Times, the team of Billy Van Zandt and Jane Milmore are among the most produced playwrights in the world for over three decades. A hilarious broadband comedy of errors, You’ve Got Hate Mail is Van Zandt and Milmore’s comic answer to A.R. Gurney’s Love Letters. In You’ve Got Hate Mail, love “bytes” all when an extra-marital affair goes horribly wrong, thanks to a juicy e-mail left sitting on a desktop. The story is told entirely in e-mails from laptop computers, although the play still manages to have an unforgettable chase scene – thanks to Blackberries and SideKicks. The heartiest laugh-for-laugh show of all the Van Zandt-Milmore comedies.

“LOL! An audience is guaranteed to do just that — laugh out loud — at “You’ve Got Hate Mail.” This comedy from Billy Van Zandt and Jane Milmore, “the high practitioners of low comedy,” is one of their more laugh-packed hits! Outright guffaws greeted this 75-minute, intermissionless free-for-all!” – Peter Filichia, NEWARK STAR LEDGER
“You gotta love ‘Hate Mail!’ Philandering spouses and phoney alibis. Mistaken identities and meddlesome buddies. Indecent exposures and improvised cover-ups. Narrow escapes and broadly-played shtick. These are the base ingredients of the good old bedroom farce — and perhaps nobody working today knows this formula better than Billy Van Zandt and Jane Milmore. (“You’ve Got Hate Mail” is) a funny play (where) the verbals zingers fly fast and furious!” – Tom Chesek, ASBURY PARK PRESS
