Be sure to catch the premiere of Autism: the Musical at 8 p.m. tonight on HBO. This 90-minute documentary follows five children with autism and their families over six months as they prepare for a full-length musical production.
Even better, people without HBO (like me) will be able to see the entire production online beginning Wednesday and ending March 31.
The documentary has received positive reviews in Variety, The New York Times, and the Newark Star-Ledger (scroll down past the farewell to Jericho.). I’ll be back to update this with my thoughts, but please feel free to post your own.
