Editorial Reviews

Jean-Claude van Itallie's adaptation is splendid, colloquial without being cute, simple, moving, funny.
NY Times
I don't think I have ever seen anything quite like this production on a stage before�I left the Beaumont exhilarated.
NY Post
...a new, faithful, very playable and gorgeous translation by Jean-Claude van Itallie.
