"The best performance I’ve seen ... Daniel Patrick Russell is flat-out astonishing as Christopher, a role that requires him to be onstage for virtually the entire play and portray extreme levels of emotional and physical trauma, as well as welcome flashes of utter joy. Russell, who is also on the spectrum, ... flawlessly plays a fragile, though sometimes volatile, teenage boy"
