- THE MIAMI HERALD
- THE VIRGINIA PILOT
"Adam Kaplan gives the best performance, and in the most difficult role... He proves he can hit those high notes, particularly in his showcase, Soul of Man.”
"Adam Kaplan is almost more effective in the role of J Pierrepont Finch than was Robert Morse, who created the role and owned it for decades. Kaplan's ambitious innocence is totally seductive."
