"Director Richard Israel treats this unconventional musical as a living diorama. From the initial tirade to the heart-swelling finale, the essential point soars. Israel explores Peter Stone’s marvelous book with independent brilliance, keeping its foregone conclusion uncertain throughout. The lights rise on a tearful audience - such is the self-evident power of this rousing musical document."
