I HAVE only cried at the theatre twice. This was the second time...It is rare in a musical to include a piece which pushes an actor to the edge of his ability but the scene when one of the young dancers, a gay Puerto Rican called Paul, describes his life was worthy of any 'heavy' piece of theatre. The young actor Jon Peterson deserves to be showered with theatrical awards. I have never seen an actor hold the audience in the palm of his hand for so long...” - Sancha Tetlow

Again, Jon Peterson's Paul, a performer whose life is a domino - mostly black - is very fine. In fact, Mr Peterson's tragic soliloquy is an essay in fine acting of a kind that stilled a packed house.” - Richard Edmonds
