Quotes & Highlights
- "Walsh's stellar adaptation [is] a guilty theatrical pleasure you don't have to atone for afterward. It's zesty, good fun — colorful theatrical comfort food with enough philosophical seasoning and emotional heat... The cogs and wheels of Holmquist's ensemble make this contraption hum like a well-tuned Bugatti" –<em>Chicago Tribune</em>
