Critic Reviews (1)

The New York Times
May 14th, 1989
For a previous production

"This new staging moves so fast as to become a headlong rush to tragedy...The greatest strength of this production lies in its exploitation of the acid humor and the irony in virtually every line...You can laugh at many of the lines and be amused by the hypocrisy of these characters, and still come away appalled at their fate...Mr. Buch's reading of the play is acute and sensitive. It shares with some of Garcia Lorca's best poetry a sense of bitter mockery that barely masks despair."
