Jaygee Macapugay as Mitsuko


The work's musical high points—big, sweepingly lovely ensemble numbers—catch this [Japanese] shared spiritual element perfectly, while others snag Shakespeare's low-comedy sense in a way that's pure kyogen.

The Village Voice

Mills' gift for infectious melodies and his singular brand of super-smart word play make him a realistic successor to the mantle of Stephen Sondheim.
