Deseret News, 11 October 1962, page A6

Article Summary:

"The cavernous stage with its elevator in the center lends itself to a change in scenes that shortened the play to three hours. This and the fact that it had been abridged considerably anyway helped keep it below the four hours it would have run if presented in full.

"There were bugs. The lighting isn't working correctly yet, since it was just hooked up Wednesday morning. Some speeches could not be heard and there was some squealing of the mikes, indicating there may be some problems with the sound system. But these are expected to be ironed out today."
