Editorial Reviews

Star-Ledger
It's one of the most fascinating cat-and-mouse games to be seen on the stage.
Variety
The beauty of TWO SISTERS AND A PIANO is its refusal to paint characters in black-and-white. Cruz's tightly constructed study of incarcerated sisters�provides the spine for an authentic study of oppression that bends but never breaks the human spirit.
