"FORTUNE is the powerful testament to the ability of the individual to overcome seemingly impossible odds to achieve success, and to the importance of family, faith, and the amazing resilience of the human spirit to overcome. A skilled ensemble cast successfully recounted Rose Fortune's story with passion and intensity. Elizabeth Flax is a powerful presence. Christopher Michael Bauer is extraordinary. Tomike Lee Ogugua is a commanding persona."
xx-David Roberts, Theatre Reviews Limited
