"Critic's Choice! Intelligent and touching! Robert Smyth's production moves as fluently as the Broadway staging."
- ( San Diego Union-Tribune )
"Outstanding! The Secret Garden calls for scenes in India, a haunted house and moor in Yorkshire, and a locked-away garden gone to seed. It features ghosts and wraith-like music to tell the story of an orphan girl with a gift for life. It demands delicate tones and spectral atmospherics. Most of all, it asks for magic. Lamb's not only achieves these feats, The Secret Garden surpasses its own high standards."
