Quotes About Jason Miller
The critic Clive Barnes was complimentary in his words:
"Mr. Miller has a perfect ear and instinct for the rough and tumble profanity of locker room humour.

"Searing examination of the competitive aspect of the American success story, and the wounds it can inflict on those who compete"
The critic Walter Kerr was impressed to call his play 'That Championship Season':
"Rock solid, bitterly funny, painfully shaming"
