"Let us be
grateful for 'Tiger Tiger Burning Bright'...honest, compassionate...Although Peter
Feibleman's play...is about Negroes in New Orleans, in a deeper sense it is about the
human condition. There is no preachment or propaganda. Nor is there a cry from
the heart that the trails and sorrows of this family are especially Negro...they are not
fighting against ancient prejudices and restrictions. They are wrestling with
problems that could scorch the lives of any family hard put to make a living and to grow
up with a sense of dignity...Mr. Feibleman has woven a drama that builds with power."
-Howard Taubman, New York Times
searing and unforgettable force."

arresting...a good drama with a wallop."
-John Chapman, New York Daily News
has vigor and candor."
-Walter Kerr, New York Herald Tribune
Burning Bright' with it's turbulent tenderness and great dramatic power is one of the most
memorable plays I have ever seen...I was so struck by the poetry of many of the passages
of 'Tiger Tiger' I had it recorded for my own enjoyment."
