Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Elliot, A Soldier’s Fugue is that rare and rewarding thing: a theater work that succeeds on every level while creating something new. The playwright combines a lyrical ear with a sophisticated sense of structure to trace the legacy of war through three generations of a Puerto Rican family. Without ever invoking current politics, Elliot, A Soldier’s Fugue manages to be a deeply poetic, touching, and often funny indictment of the war in Iraq.” –Phoebe Hoban, New York Times

“A lush and evocative tone poem about the way the landscape of the soul is transformed by war…A writer of astonishing lyricism and intellectual rigor.” –Atlanta Journal Constitution

“Simple, poignant and achingly evocative…both utterly realistic and profoundly moving” –Jessica Branch, TimeOut New York

“Hudes’s story reaches beyond the politics and pressures of this particular conflict to a collection of more universal observations — of what war means for the person, the family and the society from generation to generation.” –Steven Snyder, The Villager
