"...what really matters is Morris' response to the arrangement, and he succumbs to its rhythmic vitality with a string of merry, even ebullient numbers. Everyone sports fruity wreaths, men are shirtless, women wear Elizabeth Kurtzman's filmy white dresses."
"In Morris' world of genders defined, united, blended and separated, everyone gets to be strong and soft, all the dancers are ringed by a halo of flowers, and the multifariousness of life is life."
