“Jensen is addictively watchable...The audience leans in, convinced that Bangs can somehow save us all from an inconsequential life, just as Bangs believed that Rock and Roll can...Where do we put our faith?...The play provides no answers but if it were a score the bassline would be one of intense optimism, the verses a study of obsessive love, and the chorus an ode to pure human desire for connection, all of which leave the audience with a concert high to match any Rock and Roll show.” Full Review
"The cast delivers virtuosic vocal performances that are perfectly in keeping with the virtuosic abilities of Moses himself. Even director Carpenter seems to channel the efficiency of the man himself as she streamlines the drama and deftly utilizes every inch of stage space. The simplicity of the staging allows the cast, the music, and the story to shine while providing space for the audience to draw connections between the political dictators of the past and present."
