    Hi there! Thanks for your thoughtful review. I am the director of the production and I appreciate your insight. A couple of things – the windmill sequence has never, to my knowledge been shown onstage, always off. But I would love to have a Broadway budget to create such a spectacle! It would be amazing! I’m sorry you found the show too grim for your taste. While the staging of the show is mostly my own – I confess that I have deliberately recreated Jack Cole’s original staging from 1965 for the “Abduction” (rape) of Aldonza. So there is no contemporary spin on this production in terms of the violence depicted toward Aldonza. It’s written that way, and in this instance, I have deliberately chosen to depict that one particular scene EXACTLY as it was seen on Broadway in 1965. All the best to you- and thanks for reviewing our show. Best, Scott Thompson
