The World Is Round

"Playful and musical and beautifully presented. Utterly faithful to the text and the spirit of Stein's quicksilver intelligence, it also reveals with simplicity the fable that undergirds the word play, ...the marvelous musical settings and the committed performances show this to be a collaboration in the truest sense between the artists and all of them with Stein."- The Huffington Post
