The acting was superb! That I found myself a tad depressed by it stemmed from the fact that it called up many memories of the period from my own life, reminding me of lost friends. But the message was ultimately one of hope.

Quotes & Highlights

“Zellnik wrote A Hundred Flowers in 2001, and even now its setup seems a little daring, a little dancing-on-skeletons, with a smart sense of the complicating fear and pain underlying the liberation. It’s a warm play, ultimately, a feel-good sort of story, but with enough nuance and emotional shadings to give it real impact. The cast’s quite winning, and the talented director Paul Angelo keeps the actors on their toes, nimbly navigating the rapids of sentiment, sheer comedy, sly raunch, and genuine emotion.” —Oregon Artswatch
