"It's a total sensory experience from the moment one enters the theatre. First, you're engulfed by the sounds of frogs and crickets. David Goldstein's set glows with Jamie Roderick's warm, inviting lighting and evokes the Disney animated films and Ashdown Forest in Sussex, England that served as author A.A. Milne's inspiration. It makes you feel like you've entered an enchanted woodland. And that's before the show begins." Full Review
for a previous production “Fantastic stage adaptation...Its wild antics and grotesque yet glittery depictions of the underworld have restored lightness, cheek-aching laughter and unabashed, over-the-top, go-for-broke fun back to Broadway...A crowd-pleasing wonder...A movie-based musical that is entirely modern, original, stage-worthy and, in some ways, even superior to the film itself...The most devilishly delightful and debaucherously entertaining event on Broadway.” Full Review
“Written, directed by and featuring the multifaceted creative enchantress, Charlotte Lily Gaspard...80 minutes of magic, with a six-person cast creating a modern fairytale for the whole family...All's well that ends well -- and why shouldn't it be? This is a fairytale after all. But don't let the light-hearted approach or fanciful, family-friendly themes fool you -- this tale is a timely and contemporary as it is freewheeling and fun.” Full Review
"It’s a rare thing when all of the elements come together perfectly to create true theatrical magic...A fast-paced, cheek-aching musical comedy masterpiece! What makes it work so well isn’t any one aspect but all combined...Always clever, sometimes utterly ingenious wordplay that has the audience uproarious with laughter...But what really makes this show soar is its extraordinary cast guided by the deft direction and choreography of Bill Castellino."

"UNDER THE RADAR: 'FEOS' & 'THE SHADOW WHOSE PREY THE HUNTER BECOMES' at The Public Theater" Full Review
“This particular initiative, with all of its humility, guilelessness, and simplicity while sacrificing none of the excellence, world-class talents and elements of exceptional theatre, does perhaps the truest honor to founder Joseph Papp...It’s a rare joy to encounter free theatre of such impeccable quality that is so determined to inspire...The condensed 90 minute version of the classic work is as light as a tropical breeze while losing none of the relationships, intentions or even the subtle... Full Review
"It’s equally questioning both sides and asking us all to laugh at not only each other’s follies but our own...Though the piece was a long monologue without interruption, the constant punctuation of laughter...made the piece feels more like a dialogue...The experience feel intimate and personal, more like an enjoyable conversation with your funniest friend.” Full Review
“One of the most visually spectacular plays that still retains its sense of simplicity...The tenderness, comedy and heartbreak of this masterful piece are owed to...the fantastic cast all through the visionary, clever direction of Silverman. But the most credit must be given to the female playwright Jung, who has breathed life into such incredibly and beautifully human characters who exhibit the timeless and universal traits of strength, fragility, love and longing in the most modern setting.” Full Review
