“Theatrical re-imaging of Verne’s timeless story...A talented ensemble...play over 125 characters in this high-caliber, globe-trotting tale. The interactions between the cast is phenomenal...I felt as if I was truly transported to other continents...The moments of comic relief were well-timed and had the audience roaring with laughter...The show did not feel dated...This whirlwind adventure offers something for everyone. There’s danger, comedy, romance, dance and theatrical magic mix." Full Review
"While the story is inspiring and full of heart, the shoestring production, directed by Mr. Dyville, didn’t quite do it for me. The show seemed to be missing some ‘oomph’ and vigor and promoted little thought about the subject and times…The production also felt amateurish at times, with the recorded music drowning out some of the lyrics and a static set that never changed with the scenes. The talented cast, with painted faces, gave it their all. " Full Review
“Three one-act plays by Neil LaBute...’The Fourth Reich,’ directed by John Pierson, is a one man monologue...Then followed by ‘Great Negro Works of Art’ also directed by John Pierson...’Unlikely Japan’ was directed by Neil LaBute himself...Unfortunately, I didn’t feel anything positive about the LaBute New Theater Festival. I don’t blame the actors. They got into the roles and were believable characters. It was just that their scripts didn’t have any real substance.” Full Review
