"...In Arima's expansive and yearning production of 'Brel'
(the Stratford show that most surprises in its scope and potency)...
Arima is smart enough to make 'If We Only Have Love,' the show's
optimistic finale, sufficiently ambivalent...."
July 11, 2010, by Chris Jones

"Arima... has made a happy return home with this elegantly staged
concert of Brel's tales... His production finds a fine balance between
romantic readings of the songs, more comic interpretations and
moments where vocal exhibitionism is allowed to reign."
June 14, 2010, by J. Kelly Nestruck

"Under the direction of Stafford Arima, the iconic musical... has been
deconstructed, then rebuilt from the ground up in a way that
showcases Brel's talents for a whole new generation..."
June 15, 2010, by John Coulbourn

"The whole production, from beginning to end, is note perfect -
nothing rings false, flat or hollow."
June 13, 2010, by Robert Reid
