I am in love with his voice, and in all likelihood you will feel the same way … Rhapsodic flights of poetically rhythmic language and compelling physical immediacy … It all works to splendid effect throughout under the absolutely attuned direction of Shirley Jo Finney.” —The Hollywood Reporter
  • “Shirley Jo Finney’s vibrant direction, the vivid choreography and songs, and the remarkable three-man cast make this intimate production richly theatrical.” —Los Angeles Times, Critic’s Pick
