"Director Jim Petosa's staging of Peter Shaffer's Tony-winning script never plays it safe.

Shore Critic cheers for AMADEUS:
"Whether or not you require absolution, you should make a pilgrimage to this wonderful resurrection of a marvelous play, if only for its power to transport theatergoers to a higher plane. In a year that began with the terrific "Kite Runner", this is the perfect bookend to a very satisfying season. This production is so divine, it borders on the infallible."
