"Deeply affecting! Beautiful! A play that celebrates love." — The Boston Globe

    "Beautiful! Deeply affecting! A play that celebrates love as it examines the ways in which it can and cannot last. This production fulfills its promise with vivid, precise performances. Beautiful in many ways — there's a lot to admire here.” – The Boston Globe
    Magical! Boleros hits all the right notes. A heartfelt ode to true love. In the hands of the Huntington Theatre Company, Rivera's love song completely embodies the essence of the bolero in an enchanting production that sizzles with passion. The impeccably cast ensemble and stellar production values all contribute to that far-too-delightful experience of being entirely lost in the moment. All of the pieces have fallen so nicely into place that there's nothing to do but sit back, relax, and enjoy this journey.” – The Boston Metro
    “The Huntington Theatre Company's production is one of those plays you hope for every time you buy a ticket: luminous, well produced, tautly written, smartly directed, marvelously performed.” – EDGE Boston
