“Bandhu’s incremental shifts in Michael, from inscrutable and

reticent to confident and forthcoming, provide dynamic

contrast to both Peakes’ extroverted, controlling Gary, and to

Wai-Ching Ho’s broadly comedic Ruth.”

Bob Bows, Variety

“An impeccably performed comedy — often riotously so.

Wai Ching Ho and Pun Bandhu make for a refreshingly

uncommon stage duo — a Japanese American mother and

son who share a love for baseball.”

John Moore, Denver Post

“A home run!  An exceptional cast. This is the one show

of the Denver Center’s fantastic season that is not to be

missed…Pun Bandhu as Michael Normura, in his Denver

Center debut, did a wonderful job as the play’s conflicted


Michael Mulhern, BroadwayWorld.com

“Though afforded less stage time, Gary’s rival for the record-

breaking baseball, Michael Nomura (Pun Bandhu), and

Michael’s mother, Ruth (Wai-Ching Ho), are fully realized.

With just a few exchanges, the depth and breadth of their

relationship is made abundantly clear.”

Gary Zeidner, Boulder Weekly
