"JOAN will make you sweat.  It's raw, physical and bursting with energy...  There couldn't be a more ideal play to which to bring a theatre-reluctant teenager...  I dare you to walk out of JOAN without a tear in your eye and the feeling you can change the world for the better." —Anne Marie DeLuca,
Electric City (Scranton, PA)
