"A play about Newman and Manning which is a delightful biography of Newman following fact rather than fancy yet as human, dramatic and enchanting as a play could be. Shows the many sides of Newman's character, his love of music, shyness, brilliant intellect, literary ability, spiritual sensitivity. In short, Mr. Lavery has conscientiously yet cleverly portrayed the sheer genius of the man. Manning is drawn with equal dexterity as are the lesser characters. Should have a better sale than the average play and should be worth producing." -Kirkus Review
