“As the indefatigable Latvian Jewish immigrant Tateh, Patrick Burns brings a dominating stage presence. Our eyes go immediately toward him when he and the others crawl out of steerage. Burns, who somehow doubles as the show’s musical director, also brings a well-trained and expressive musical voice, especially in the key number “Success.” Unexpectedly, he turns into a romantic swain in the second act and also light-foots some dance steps.”

— James MacKillop, Syracuse New Times
