"This story should be told to every generation."

"I was totally blown away, this is an Opus Magnus. It's a passionate, moving, provocative work of sheer brilliance. Whoever hears this will be completely hooked . . ."
- Jason Grant, promoter/producer,
Creative Director of St. George's Playhouse
"I do recall that - among
many things - I found myself, during the performance, "reminding"
myself (as it were) that what you've essayed to do is marry operatic
form with rock/theatre. I.e., you are attempting - successfully, in
my view - to allow the audience to be carried along by music and what
music conveys. Or, putting it another way, you did not feel compelled
constantly to illustrate (scenes/sets) or dictate (lyrics/book) but
rather to let the arguments (in the 17th-c. use of the word) convey
themselves gradually so that we, the audience, could reflect on them.
Indeed, the message of your piece, "The Children of Children,"
is profound - not lightweight - and therefore deserves a full treatment
both on stage and - perhaps more significantly - in the audience's minds.
