Exiled Earns Praise from Local Critics
J. Peter Bergman praises James Benjamin Rodgers and Jillian Zack for their performance of Exiled: The Evolution of Kurt Weill in his review for The Berkshire Edge

“When Zack plays these pieces, they instantly take us to those places and those years. It is as though she were born to play his work and I wish that Lenya had lived long enough to hear her play these Weill masterpieces. “
