Mystic Writings Of Paul Revere, The

Work

"Each of the work's five sections dealt with some aspect of an American event, save perhaps the last, which was a long solo by Miss Lord in silver boots and chiffon with a space helmet.  The Indian woman who shuffled and chanted in a bulky gray dress transformed herself into an excited gypsy card dealer in the dream sequence, the Pilgrim father threw open his somber cape to reveal a garish red lining with astral signs dotting it and a woman in harem pants jogged back and forth while all others stood still.  In the following section, the young man in the golfing trousers danced with a girl in a flapper dress in the most coherent portion of the work."
