REVIEWS

Amazing Grace,” the stirring musical that received its world premiere Sunday night at the Bank of America Theatre, spins the story of one man’s slow, painful, intensely dramatic moral awakening to the abominations of slavery. An epic historical romance, with a strong undercurrent of the possibility of redemption, it has been artfully produced on the sort of lavish scale you’d expect for a new show by, say, Schonberg and Boublil, the creators of “Les Miserables,” or Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, whose “Ragtime” deals with the notion of racism with similar passion.

------Chicago Sun-Times

The singing is excellent — call it the show’s saving grace. Mr. Hewitt and Mr. Cooper, both stalwart musical theater veterans, give forceful renderings of their minimally drawn characters. Ms. Mackey’s pure, radiant soprano delights the ear, and she infuses Mary with a touching sincerity that helps make convincing the rather unnatural moral perfection of her character. Mr. Young’s tenor matches Ms. Mackey’s in its bright, limpid richness
