Despite winning a Pulitzer Prize, the play didn't always receive good reviews, here's one from the New York Times:
"''TOPDOG/UNDERDOG'' sent quite a jolt through Broadway in 2002 when it played at the Ambassador Theater, so much so that many companies may be reluctant to revisit it without letting a few decades pass first. But Luna Stage here has taken up the challenge, a doubly bold gamble given that in Luna's tiny house there is no buffer zone between actors and audience; if the performers fail, they fail a few feet from the front row.
