"...this one-man musical plays like a fresh variation on 'Wonderful Town'
propelled by stunning music and a tremendously appealing solo performance
by Shonn Wiley. Timothy Huang's score boasts masterful plot- and
character-driven songs and comedic set pieces... Some have a contemporary
throb, but others have a haunting melodic quality that seems torn from
the annals of the Great American Songbook, populated by such folks as
George Gershwin and Harold Arlen..." -

"...songs like the wistfully romantic 'A Little Part

and a singular realization of this man's experiences there... often so
effortlessly moving and openhanded that you feel as if you're being
granted a forbidden peek into this man's psyche..." Matthew Murray,
