    "The theatrical equivalent of a high-wire act without a net."

    New York Post

    "Getting a play up on Broadway under normal circumstances can take years; so doing it all in 24 hours is pretty action-packed. Think Jack Bauer meets Waiting for Guffman."

    New York Times

    "...Mini-masterworks..."

    The New York Sun

    "Redefines fresh and brings theater to a Rock and Roll audience."
