"...In the end Doodle is that once-and-future misfit who, though he never meant to for a second, improves on life just by being different. He may be too good for this world but he's perfect for this opera."

Chicagoland Musical Theatre - Highly Recommended

"...Director Elizabeth Margolius paints organic and powerful stage pictures; her ability to set tone and explore characters through spatial relationship is moving and inspired. Margolius employs levels to great dramatic effect as bodies rise and fall while climbing the expansive set; moreover, her interesting use of body shape throughout the opera creates clear intent and verbose emotionality."
