"...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

"...the 1968 revue... has been given fresh life at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival under the direction of Stafford Arima. Arima...has made a happy return home with this elegantly staged concert of Brel's tales of lying lovers, traumatic visits to brothels and hard-drinking sailors in the port of Amsterdam. His production finds a fine balance between romantic readings of the songs, more comic interpretations and moments where vocal exhibitionism is allowed to reign."

"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
