Press Quotes

  • "Resurrection to Richard Rodgers' "Slaughter on Tenth Avenue" is a rollicking, amoral shoot-em-up that acquits the murderers with tongue-in-cheek redemption."
    The Berkshire Eagle
  • "Zaniness abound, but tempered, Morris-style...The over-the-top shenanigans, including the gloriously corny happy ending, work. We're in expert hands."
