"Everybody's Got The Right To Be Happy"

Step right up, ladies and gents, for a sight to see and a spectacle to behold. It is my supreme pleasure to direct your attention to this morning’s Washington Post, and the review therein by one Mr. Michael Toscano…

“Director Craig Pettinati created a finely tuned unit with his cast of 18 and the small but rich-sounding orchestra conducted by Stuart Y. Weich.”

“Every performance is perfect -- a truly remarkable achievement.”

“John Wilkes Booth, played with self-absorbed swagger by Diego Prieto…”

“Charles Guiteau (Jeff Breslow)… is played as an all-out loon.”

“Also notable is Casey Jones, radiating unhinged fury as Samuel Byck... Jones alternates between moments of dramatic intensity and dark comedy as he spills his guts into a tape recorder for a tour de force performance.”

Damn. I mean, HOT DAMN.

I could not be prouder of this cast, this crew, or this director. If you’ll excuse me, I’m going to do a little dance now.

Out. Standing.
