On March 3, 2005 The Detroit Free Press reported, "'The Children of Abraham,' casts Christian, Jewish and Muslim young people as characters who wrestle with the world's most explosive issue: religious bigotry. On stage, there's singing and dancing -- but the players also argue, call each other names and pour out heartfelt stories of pain and anger. And in the end, they remember that all their faiths descend from the ancient patriarch Abraham. The show closes with an invitation for the audience to join the dialogue. After a year of barnstorming Michigan, these young people from the Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit are drawing nationwide attention, thanks to CBS-TV, the University of Michigan and the multimillion-dollar Fetzer Foundation in Kalamazoo."
