The Highest Heaven is intended for families and young audiences

The play's themes explore the Drepression, butterflies, hobos, Mexico, growing up and conservation

The Highest Heaven premiered with Childsplay Inc., Arizona, and was subsequently presented at the Mark Taper Forum's P.L.A.Y

"In The Highest Heaven [Cruz] created a fable that is as appetizing for adults as it is for young people

It is a cautionary tale of greed, passion and cruelty and, at the same time, a magical enchantment that sends the senses soaring along with the monarch butterflies that are the focus of the story

Even at its most dazzling, the magic in The Highest Heaven has meaning

Sometimes that meaning is subtle, but the assumption is: If the younger members of the audience don't get it, the older ones will explain it" ~ The Arizona Republic
