What the critics are saying…

“Emotional and eerily beautiful, gripping you well after you leave the theatre.”

— Carissa Chesanek, BroadwayWorld

“The real triumph of the show is Grace Oberhofer’s glorious musical realization of Helen Banner’s compelling lyrics… It’s a glimpse of a unique creative collaboration that deserves notice – accessible, beautiful, historically informed, and convincingly executed by a troupe of highly talented singers and actors who make you feel their presence even through a recording.”

— Jon Sobel, Blogcritics

“In its organic, highly emotive qualities, the score calls to mind the haunting compositions of the late Elizabeth Swados.”

— Adrian Dimanlig, Interludes
There are no live performers in the space. All visitors and staff will be required to wear masks while inside the building. Timed entry will ensure members of separate parties remain six feet apart when inside the installation, and strict capacity limits, enhanced air filtration, health screening and contract tracing protocols will be in effect.
