What the Press is Saying

Los Angeles Times
"Recommended! In director Nic Arnzen's heartfelt take, a multiracial, gender-bent ensemble led by the affecting James Brandon lands its core message ..."

-Los Angeles Times

New York Times
"Without the noise of controversy, the play can finally be heard. Staged with admirable delicacy..this 108 productions revival...has moments of hard-won sentiment that will win over the biggest skeptic."

-New York Times

Three Weeks, Edinburgh
“4 stars! The company loves this story, they tell us so straight away - and by the end, you will love it too..this show will make a believer out of you!”

-Three Weeks, Edinburgh

Scotsgay Magazine, Edinburgh
“5 stars! The pure talent and genuine faith demonstrated by these actors was enough to warm the cockles of even the hardest heathen heart, and in this show I found the answer to questions I had always asked about how one could reconcile being gay and Christian.”

-Scotsgay Magazine, Edinburgh

LA Weekly, Los Angeles
"GO! The entire cast gives great performances...creating an ending that is almost cinematic in its scope."

-LA Weekly, Los Angeles

The Advocate
"The performances are remarkable... it is undeniably moving."

-The Advocate
