Notes: “Hope pulses so strongly through Theophilus North…. Burnett injects his script with cosmic scope.… Imaginative, forceful theater…. Charming and breathtaking all at once…. In the spirit of Wilder and with a dramatic vigor all its own, the play turns large-hearted living into art.” --Variety

“Undaunted, [it] evokes…tender, unforced humanity…. Rich in dry humor, and in Wilder’s…philosophy that the cosmic permeates the quotidian…. Gently funny, spryly wise…” --Time Out New York

“Charming… Captures Wilder’s spirit of genial humor and tempered optimism…. Ignites sparks of surprisingly deep emotion.” --New York Daily News

“Excavates the Wilder play buried in the novel…. This Theophilus North is unmistakably a cousin of Our Town…. There are muscles rippling under the play’s rose-scented skin.” --New York Sun
