Entertaining, Edgy, Fluffy

See it if you cannot miss Austin Pendleton, the all around theater person. I also love an Arena stage as a set. Intimate site is great Nice effort.

Don't see it if you expect a dynamite show or cannot handle the cast when they must speak with their backs to you.

Superficial, Silly, Childish, Excellent acting, Fantasy

See it if you like fairy tales, "light weight" handling of moral and religious issues, silly humor and good acting.

Don't see it if you favor serious treatment of morality and religion, realism and in-depth characterizations.

"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."
