“This show tackles the transformative power of music without a single line of dialog...Part of the achievement of Mr. Smith, who conceived and directed the show: the evocation of an audience’s internal world, as they go from fascinated befuddlement to euphoria...Mr. Smith tries to freeze-frame a moment in American history...Nothing much happens: It’s just some people at a show. But the moment is suffused with both elation and unease.” Full Review

"It almost makes you feel like you’re also high and at the show with these people. 'The Hendrix Project' wouldn’t be half as interesting if not for some great sound and video design by Marc Anthony Thompson...Suffice it to say, you should probably like the music of Jimi Hendrix if you want to enjoy this show...While the effect of watching 'The Hendrix Project' is kind of like being in a drug-induced haze, it ends with the sobering realization that this is one of Hendrix’s final performance."
