"Gloria, like a classical movement from Handel or Vivaldi, makes the mundane sublime. With its superb action and witty yet emotionally moving script the play takes us on an exhausting and exhaustive journey. With the pulse of the first act, the rest of the scenes ripple hoping to come to stasis; and the audience hopes, nay prays, too. Brace yourself for an unassuming play that packs a wallop. This piece represents how good off Broadway can be." Full Review
"The one thing missing from the show is its spontaneity and rare, 'caught' moments that represent Jazz...This is still a show worth seeing for its exuberant use of music, its beautiful orchestrations, layered set, and lastly, its intention of storytelling. It truly is a new show for an old canon. Although it doesn’t quite knock it out of the park, the musical gives you a pleasurable evening in the bayou." Full Review
"It tackles heavy issues, this play is warm, unexpectedly charming, and powerful. The Scottish actors’ portrayals are very satisfying, the set design is fresh, and direction by Phillip Howard is tighter than a ship captain’s. This little show takes on many epics with real curiosity, depositing old tales into the blood of this play. And soon 'In My Father’s Words' itself reads like an epic with something new to say about discovering inward and out." Full Review
