 " of the toughest but most emotionally rewarding musicals to be presented in Vermont in a long time."
- Jim Lowe, Rutland Herald/Times Argus [more]


"meaningful, riveting theatre...Blickenstaff offered a powerful, unvarnished performance..." - Kevin O'Toole, Manchester Journal [more]


"an electrifying production..."
