    What the critics had to say.....

    CHARLES ISHERWOOD of the NEW YORK TIMES says �Admire, please. Gasp and applaud to your heart's content.�
    CLIVE BARNES of THE NEW YORK POST says "Jones is unquestionably a good actress, but the passionless material ... is paper-thin, and slowly tears into pieces before one's eyes. "
    ROMA TORRE of NY1 says "It is a tour de force that makes you think and feel in equal measure. This U.N. assortment of common men and women is quite a trip, and anyone who considers himself a citizen of the world shouldn't miss it."
    MICHAEL KUCHWARA of ASSOCIATED PRESS says "It's a hymn to the diversity of the American dream _funny, biting and emotional. But Jones possesses the ability to pull it off. She has the comic timing of a burlesque comedian, the verbal dexterity of a Sotheby's auctioneer and malleable."
    FRANK SCHECK of the HOLLYWOOD REPORTER says "If her procession of characters eventually becomes a bit wearying, the depth and skill with which she renders them more than justify this Broadway transfer."
