"Another notable work by the outstanding craftsmen of our musical theatre...a lovely show, an outstanding one in theme and treatment." — New York Daily Mirror

"FLOWER DRUM SONG continues to live and breathe, and sing, as joyously as it did three and a half decades in the past...Revolutionary for its time, it continues to be so in ours." — Inside Asian America
