"Director Katrina Dunn wisely pays great attention to many minor details in staging It's All True, based on real events surrounding Orson Welles' attempt in 1973 to mount the Mare Blitzstein musical The Cradle Will Rock."

"Dizzying dialogue, dazzling actors, and a handsome production-it's all there."
