Playbill from off-Broadway production

“Reunion should be seen across the country.”

The New York Times

Reunion: A Musical Epic in Miniature was produced on an off-Broadway contract at the Theatre Row Theatre in New York, where it opened on March 26, 1999. The show opened as a production of AMAS Musical Theatre and was subsequently produced commercially at the same theatre by Eugene Kallman.

“A small packed theater of war, a series of strategic encounters of history, minstrelsy and melodrama; of music as entertainment, catharsis and patriotic gore; of a small band of players and a vast national enterprise. Reunion should be seen across the country” The New York Times

Margo Jefferson

“Stunning. Even non-Civil War buffs are sure to be captivated.This mighty little production seems twice its size. Why aren’t there more shows like this one?” Stage Directions Magazine

“Moving… clever… heartbreaking. Plumbs the emotional depths of those wrenchingly turbulent times.” Newsday

“Run to see Reunion!” Backstage

“ Reunion is infinitely smarter than its Broadway counterpart [The Civil War].” USA Today

“Miraculous. Reunion is intelligent, passionately rendered… a happy surprise.” Aisle Say

“A visually and musically stunning piece of theatre. Lets the audience lift the curtain on one of the most compelling dramas in American history. Bravo!” Theatre Reviews Limited
