“A rousingly 
good ensemble... 
Watching them, you experience the excited wonder 
that comes from witnessing a new, authentically original vision...

I have seldom 
seen a play 
in which 
the tellers 
and their tales 
seem so 
ineffably one.”

~ The New York Times
“The cast 
is dazzling.” 
~ Variety
