"En Garde Arts has set its depression era musical/ melodrama in a Masonic hall and the result is a vivid slice of history... If you're in the mood to consider alternative theatre, you couldn't do much better than to check out "Marathon Dancing."... It's not your average theatre experience." —Vincent Canby, The New York Times
