New York Times:
Theater: 'Xmas in Las Vegas' Opens; Jack Richardson Play Stars Tom Ewell
by Howard Taubman; November 05, 1965
"It is depressing to report that Jack Richardson, who has a flair for the English language and a sense of irony, continues to be what he has been for some years: no more than a promising young playwright...."
