“Brilliant! …Intense! …Unforgettable! …Powerful! …The entire ensemble puts in strong performances, throwing light not just on these fascinating characters out of history, but on a twisted view of the American Dream. …Some pretty powerful storytelling.
...Lluberes was brilliant in his choices. ...His vision for the show was clear in the ways he moved his actors around the thrust stage turned into a circular carnival, with levels that allowed the action to constantly keep audiences engaged. He feasted them with intense blocking, unforgettable images and a careful managing of the musical’s many moods."
