"...Peluso lets this show go on far too long. But in the final breaths, as was the case in 1968, a message of hope carries a measure of redemption."

Twin Cities Daily Planet- Recommended

"...Finally, the decision to open and close 1968 with the opening and closing songs from the rock opera Hair did not seem appropriate. Hair opened on Broadway in 1968, but the songs from Hair did not enter mainstream consciousness until it started receiving radio play in 1969. There were other songs from the time period that were more relevant, including “If You’re Going to San Francisco” by Scott McKenzie, which I recall was played non-stop on the radio during the time of the Prague Spring in 1968, or Dion’s "Abraham, Martin and John" another frequently played song that year. Despite these flaws, 1968 is definitely a play worth attending and discussing not just for those of us who can remember the year but, more importantly, for those who know little about that year."
