Reviews for Sonata 1962
Broadway World Review: SONATA 1962 is Real, Relatable and Heart-Wrenching
by Stephanie Wild | August 5, 2018
"... this show was brilliant and moved me to tears on multiple occasions. I appreciated how Margaret was painted as a perfect mother, making biscuits for Laura and being patient with her recovery, until it was revealed exactly why she had the treatment in the first place."
"... 'I Will Remember Your Song,' which Sarah sings about Laura after they are apart. It was one of my favorite and most memorable songs in the show, and while simple, Canning-Skinner made it heart-wrenching and relatable."
"... Sonata 1962 is a must-see. It strikes an emotional chord, and can be relatable to so many, while still feeling true and real. The cast is packed with stellar performances and the score is one, I could see myself listening to on a daily basis. Seriously, where's that cast album?"
