The audience loved it!

“The reading was a gem–your director and cast pulled off a sterling performance despite cramped scheduling and limited resources. Vidal’s dialogue really came alive. And despite the fact that earlier revivals over the past 20 years have not fared well, the timeliness of this reading was stunning. We think the time is ripe to re-stage.” — Sharon & Irving Lerch
