Quotes from the press

 

“Girl Friday Productions blends the unconventional with the familiar to produce a cozy, truly lovely staging that is sweet but not sugary, sincere but not cloying, clear-eyed without being cynical, and tender without being maudlin.”

—Dominic Papatola, Pioneer Press

 

 

Our Town

by Thornton Wilder

 

July 6-28, 2007

Directed by Craig Johnson 

 

“Our Town is not… a picture of life in a New Hampshire village; or a speculation about the conditions of life after death. It is an attempt to find a value above all price for the smallest events in our daily life...”

—Thornton Wilder
