“Quite funny. A poignant expose, told with humor, candor and fun physicality. Rothman leaves her viewers not only amused, but thinking deeply about what it really takes to be successfully married, with children and dogs.” — SF Examiner

“Rothman’s considerable strengths, as a writer and performer, make this worth taking in. Date Night at Pet Emergency makes for a funny, funny time out!” — Cy Ashley Webb, The Stark Insider

“It was spectacular.  Great storytelling and a great performance.” — Susan Stone, Award-winning former Director of Drama and Literature at KPFA Radio

“This show is worth getting a sitter for!” — Michelle Fagerroos, Mother of Triplets

“This show is not to be missed!” — Ms. Weissman, Kindergarten Teacher (who brought her mom)

“Rothman is a natural-born storyteller!” — Bay Area Reporter
