"Alex's performance was so incredibly powerful -- charged with honesty, humanity, urgency, resilience, and hope...Thank you for bringing voices like Alex's to our city. Just like with The Peculiar Patriot, which I saw recently as well, I feel more connected to my fellow Americans when I can more viscerally understand their pain and struggle...Thank you again for making art like this available to Boston audiences."- Audience Member
