"Matthew Lopez's rhapsodic deep dive into the ties that bind the gay community to its past asks how to love, how to live and how to do those well, despite a legacy of damage. It's captivating." -- The Times "An openhearted American theatrical epic. Capaciously moving and blisteringly alive." -- New York Times "An emotional powerhouse. A ravishing theatrical work that urges generations to connect and love. Gripping from first scene to last." -- Rolling Stone "Stop the clocks; the race is won. Here is the play of this year and last year and quite possibly next year as well. This is a work of rare grace, truth and beauty." -- Evening Standard "Powerful, gutsy, shattering, and written totally from the heart. Matthew Lopez's empathetic drama is a moving call for an intergenerational conversation." -- New York Post
