    What the critics had to say.....

    CHARLES ISHERWOOD of the NEW YORK TIMES says �Mr. Jones, a newly hot young playwright whose career is now steaming along, will surely soon learn that a flight of fancy, however bold, is never as rewarding as a journey through the challenging maze of real experience.�
    NEWSDAY says "A deeply odd creation that justifies an impressive amount of tongue-in-cheek, sci-fi claptrap with enough strangeness and charm to make a nuclear physicist proud."
    MICHAEL KUCHWARA of ASSOCIATED PRESS says "Makes for a vivid, highly theatrical and even emotional evening of theater."
    MICHAEL FEINGOLD of the VILLAGE VOICE says "Jones's script is full of intelligence and compassion as well as charm."
