Ingratiatingly acted by Jeff McCarthy who is ably supported by Erin Roche, the play has been lovingly directed by Meagan Fay who allows McCarthy to delve into the soul of the great man.

The Barrington Stage company is a wonderful theater. Every performance we have seen over more than 5 years, both on main stage and second stage have been extraordinary! Broadway could not be better!

I've seen three shows here. All of them were first-rate. The first time was a real surprise, even though I went because the NY Times had given the show a terrific review. The quality of the performances, the costumes, the singing voices, and so on is very high.
