The Toronto Star

for a previous production “This is one pie you’ll want a second slice of…An amazing hour of music, poetry and sheer theatrical invention…This work is credited as an ensemble creation...They all work so well together you’ll want to hug them collectively or, at least, never take your eyes off them while they’re onstage...This isn’t a kid’s show. It’s a people show. All human beings are invited and ought to attend as soon as possible.” Full Review
