"Sentimental, good-natured and humorous...The rambling plot is too ambitious as a stage play...The characters are all finely realized but the action is literally all over the place without making much impact...Padden's staging brings clarity, visual texture and as much pace as possible to this voluminous material...Padden's efforts with the cast...are inspired and go a long way to rendering this complicated play stageworthy...Strives for emotional resonance but only fitfully achieves it."

"Trivializing God is a staple of bad plays...In this play God is weak, easily manipulated, and not even funny...And we don’t care what’s happening in this play because the script doesn’t make us care. The writing is sketchy; it glosses over dramatic action. There’s no dramatic tension...Padden does the best he can considering the material. He keeps everything moving along at a nice clip...He’s staged in the round; it makes for a nice intimacy, but doesn’t salvage the play." Full Review
