Rock 'n' Roll

Now what was that old nonsense about Tom Stoppard as all head and no heart?  Mr. Stoppard's exciting new play of immutable passions and mutable politics, "Rock 'n' Roll," is so flush with feeling that it never seems to stop trembling. — Ben Brantley in the New York Times, June 22, 2006
