This production is ENTHRALLING, ELECTRIC and taken to a level of PURE PHYSICAL EXHILARATION. Its hard not to melt into sweet agony.

Great Show,

reviewer: from New York, NY
This show was fantastic. Spanish dialogue added a touch of realism. Judging from a couple of these reviews, especially the person from PA who can't even spell the word "AUDIENCE" spelled it as "AUDIANCE" I can see that unfortunately there are still an abundance of "BIGOTS" in this country. This person claims he/she did NOT see any Puerto Ricans in the "AUDIANCE" "They don't see plays" ! WOW !! I suppose this ignoramus is an expert on all thing Puerto Rican !! That's about as bigoted as anyone can get. This idiot's review should have been deleted. Anyway so much for ignorance ! It was a great show and I'm glad I did not pay attention to that fool's review.

I just came home and had to write my own review. This is the most amazing, beautifully done play I have ever seen. I have seen many over the years, and this one just takes the cake. The cast is so gifted and talented. I was floored by the energy from scene to scene and I was actually in tears during the performance; so moving. Many thanks to this entire production for a day in the city to remember. Standing ovations are a must after every show indeed!!!!!!!!!!

Cream of the cream,
Jul 12, 2010
reviewer: from New York
Anyone who does not like this musical, does not like musicals. Electric, vivacious, not enough Spanish--it is administered as only as the faintest sprinkle of cinnamon to our unbelievably fine whipped cream---electric colors, electric dance, electric emotion, sweetest of music. A complete success, and any small errors that occur in a musical are to remind you that this is something handmade, handcrafted, prepared for you each night---and should add to the thrill. An off-note? Listen to the ones that exceed the ordinary mark. They will follow. Someone jostles someone else onstage? A delicious bit of reality.
