"First saw it in previews, then several times afterwards. The chemistry of Mandy Patinkin and Bernadette Peters lives up to the legend: sexy, layered magic. The tension in the scene where George breaks the date with Dot, heartbreaking. Then he sings 'Finishing the Hat,' the most complex monologue set to song I have ever experienced. Seeing Mandy perform that particular scene was a master class in acting for me. Likewise, Bernadette reliving her memories to George in Act Two's 'Children and Art,' indelibly haunting."
