“...As ever, it is the directorial vision and the skills and commitment of the cast that count for the most in a revival, and now playing at the Union Theatre is Christian Durham’s production of Children of Eden which is beautifully thought through, where simplicity and honesty take to the fore, as well as some fun with puppets.... Durham makes some inspired choices ... his production is chock full of detail and action ... Ain’t It Good? Asks one of Schwartz’s songs. Yes, it is.” - Livetheatreuk
