"Narrative sometimes gives way to choreographic frenzy, and pathos is reduced to period-piece ritual...Michael Yeargan’s decors strip the stage to bare requisites, ignoring the erstwhile charm of folksy realism…Danny Burstein is agreeable, self-effacing and, alas, somewhat dull. Call him smaller than life. He enjoys sensitive support, however, from Jessica Hecht as his long-suffering wife...The nostalgic crowd at the preview appeared to love everything." Full Review

"This super-energetic interpretation doesn’t take any such factors too seriously or too strictly. Sure, the plot, as it survives, still toys with quarrelling lovers, misplaced fairies, a finagling arch-pixie and timely intrusions by a brash band of mechanicals. Though reduced to two hours, the show bumbles, tumbles and rumbles along merrily, vocal outpourings of varied intensity accompanied (or contradicted) by gutsy percussion." Full Review
