The Human Comedy
Published by Samuel French Inc
"Like Our Town , which it resembles in so many ways, The Human Comedy concerns life and death and growing up in a small community ... Along with its poignancy and heartfelt feeling for home, the adaptation captures Saroyan's joie de vivre" ~ Christian Science Monitor
"Funny, charming and touching ... a stirring flight of musical fancy ... This has to be the most inspired, inventive and downright pleasurable music to grace Broadway in a long, long time" ~ WCBS TV
Newsweek praised "MacDermot's plain, open faced style, a melange of jazz, rock and gospel" as "ideally suited to the sturdy values of familial love, courage and patriotism that Saroyan so sentimentally celebrated"
