"Feel-good, funny and foot-stomping! Smyth has honed the musical's pacing, choreography, and blocking to a science, the well-cast trio of singing actors fit snugly in their roles, and the addition of a local blue-grass quintet, the 7th Day Buskers provides an exceptional musical backdrop."

"The cast hits all marks! The familiar story unfolds in fresh ways. Under Deborah Gilmour Smyth's assured direction, the story—and Harry Chapin's bluegrass gospel music—gets a deft and lively treatment."
