“With the likes of 
Susan Moniz, 
Karla L. Beard 
and Sean Allan Krill 
singing their 
heads off, 
the score finally feels rich and fulfilling.”
~ Chicago Tribune
“Krill is a revelation here, displaying mesmerizing depth. We see a dark, 
self-loathing soul 
pushed to madness and disbelieving rage. 
His final scene is an indelible portrait 
of righteousness 
stripped away 
to reveal fanaticism and 
self-destruction fueled 
by sexual desire.”
~ Windy City Times
