CRITIC REVIEW:

"Christian Zwarg writes that this [‘…proves that even back in those days [1910], nepotism was a highly developed art’]…. Albert Schott’s dramatic efforts [and we do mean ‘efforts’] in this best-forgotten ‘Ungeduld’ is a severe case in point. As well as being painful to hear, on a more optimistic note it is truly hysterically uproarious! Just when you thought you’d heard everything, this tour de farce is intended for the collector who has everything, including a ribald sense of humor. . . accompanied by equally funny program notes in German and English."
