Editorial Reviews

Daily Variety
A comical, restorative journey of discovery...from darkness to light, from inhibition to unrestrained joy. Beautiful and theatrically rewarding.
Hartford News
The kind of play that reminds you of why you love theatre.
L.A. Times
ENCHANTED APRIL is as good as they come: a lush, thoroughly refreshing theatrical holiday. Escape has seldom seemed so sweet. A magical triumph.
nytheatre.com
ENCHANTED APRIL is that rarity: a play where every single element falls perfectly into place�a show that leaves you positively glowing.

I only can speak to the version of this play I saw in Seattle at a small company playhouse, and it was absolutely brilliantly done. Like the novel, it's a bit sentimental, but creates its own charm and one can't help but be taken in by the characters. By the end of the play, I felt as if we were old friends.
