"It’s a hymn to tenacity, laced with melancholy, futility and a touch of the supernatural. The songs, dating from 1963 to 2012 and ranging from the familiar to the deeply niche, float out of the action, actors stepping up to microphones and picking up instruments to perform them alongside a tight onstage band."
"Against this backdrop, it would be easy for the entire production to descend into a kind of numbing, unremitting misery. But McPherson is better than that. His characters know how to laugh as well as cry."
"The playwright Conor McPherson has come up with an intriguing hybrid, not quite a musical, nor a singalong jukebox show. It’s an inventive piece of writing that, in the end, proves frustratingly diffuse; there’s a nagging suspicion that McPherson — who also directs — never quite has control over his sprawling cast of characters."
