Quotes & Highlights

“Thanks to director Michael Kahn’s keen vision, inspired casting, skillful editing and beautiful pacing, the play positively flies. Francesca Faridany is absolutely stellar.”  -Metro Weekly_ _

Description

Running time is approximately 3 hours, 45 minutes with two intermissions.
