Mel Gussow of the New York Times said almost the same thing with, "This is the supreme theatrical event of the season."

A nation of birds is in crisis, and urged on by one of their flock, the Hoopoe, they chart a path to find their king." There are moments of farce and despair as they attempt to cross the seven valleys with their disturbing riddles. Some die, some drop out, while others continue their quest.
