Published Reviews

"A disturbing, true tale of double lives...demonstrates the power of truth-telling and the art that shapes it."

Lisa Brock, Star Tribune (Minnesota)

"Hiding in the Open does an admirable job of bringing Zimering's story of masquerade, deception, intrigue, loyalty, altruism and hope to the stage."

Doris Rubenstein, American Jewish World News

"'Thrilling' is the word my companion used to describe Hiding in the Open. I would add 'moving' and 'compelling.'"

Renee Valois, Pioneer Press (Minnesota)
