“Combat! juggles myriad elements, with engaging , witty, resourceful, cinematically sweeping results. Combat! is already worthy of play on any first-rate regional stage… Major regional theaters might be wise to sniff out the potential before they're trumped.” (Dennis Harvey, Variety.)

"Fisher's Combat! Carries the Day! History, sexuality merge in ambitious, pass ionate epic!
Exhilarating! John Fisher restakes his claim as one of the most stimulating theater artists to emerge here in the past decade... [Fisher] gives his material such a confident theatrical charge that the audience feels the kind of vibrations Tony Kushner unleashed in Angels in America." [The little man is clapping!] (Steven Winn, S.F. Chronicle.)
