    What the critics had to say.....

    DONALD LYONS of the NEW YORK POST says "'The costumes and scenery dazzle more than the music " SAM WHITEHEAD of TIME OUT NY says "With few exceptions, everything .... is so loud and all over the map that it must be seen to be believed." BEN BRANTLEY of NEW YORK TIMES says "...it has the disconnected, sterile feeling that suggests it has been assembled, piecemeal, by committee."
