"PEOPLE BE HEARD is first and foremost a paean to democracy, especially the messy, foolish, successful-in-spite-of-itself-and-against-all-odds variety that we've been practicing in the United States of America for 228 years. I love this about PEOPLE BE HEARD: That's why I say that this is a necessary, important play, at this moment in particular." —NYTheatre.com. "In his new comedy with songs, [Long] has written a satiric, provocative, often hilarious investigation into our local governing system and how all voices in a democracy are equal." —BackStage.
