Magic/Bird Critics' Reviews

"This is not really a play so much as a salute to two sports heroes of yesteryear. Their love of the game and honorable behavior toward each other despite their rivalry on the court now makes them stand apart from the contemporary stereotype of the arrogant, overpaid pro athlete, living large and chasing celebrity tail."

Review by David Rooney from The Hollywood Reporter

"Simonson’s script is best when he’s telling the private moments that cameras never caught: This is the story of Johnson and Bird as bitter rivals who grow to become friends."

Review by Peter Marks from The Washington Post
