Broadway World - Recommended

"...But looking at the show from a larger picture, I think Smith and Mariano's decision to debut it during this political arena was smart. It may have had some flaws but the message intended for the audience was clearly envisioned. The America we live in is a tumultuous country, and it's important for us to understand history should never repeat itself."

The Tolucan Times - Highly Recommended

"...The excellent cast's spot-on timing and chemistry make the conflicts palpable. Mariano's vulnerable Rose nears her breaking point, passionate Mary Roebling (Margy Love) fights for women's rights, while Paul McCrillis' slimy publisher Simon Lick promotes falsehoods. Sanford Reed's charming Henry must choose between defending family or country, while romantic James (Stevenson) struggles between following his heart or his father's wishes."

"...Family and love, loss and war, fear and betrayal all on a global scale reflected in the story of a few good people trying to create a home. It's touching and funny and tragic...I loved it."
