  1. I attended Dead Man Walking tonight and it's been years since I left a theater as humbled and moved as I was tonight. Jordan Shanahan is a compelling artist and one I hope to see on the stage for years to come.

  2. Elise Quagliata as Sister Helen was a fabulous foil to the fabulous Dead Man Shanahan.
