“Sometimes, when a thing is beautiful, you should just sit back and say thanks. And tell others…The Hudson Stage production has a lovely feel for the play’s lyrical warmth and openhearted wonder. It’s better than real; it has a touch of magic…Mr. Hayden and Ms. Rogers have marvelous, play-making chemistry, the sort that has its own shimmering aura. As Rosemary, Ms. Rogers is a live wire: potentially dangerous, filled with power and absolutely transfixing. She’s stellar. In the more challenging role, Mr. Hayden makes Anthony an odd orchid in a field of grass; he’s convincingly manly and vulnerable, strong and ashamed…As their parents, Mr. Hall — a quintessentially flinty Irish father — and Ms. Pellegrino have some of the play’s best material, trading blunt and meaningful meditations on parenting and mortality. Ms. Pellegrino has a natural ease that helps the show find its rhythm…We could use more simple beauty in our theater.”
