Delightful, Entertaining, Great staging, Great singing, Quirky

See it if You have kids or are a kid at heart. If you enjoy fun poems and songs, or have a love of the source material.

Don't see it if You don't like children's theater or you are a terrible, horrible person.

Also What a fun time I had with my wife and kids at this show. We'd never read "Alligator Pie" or heard of it until the show, now it's one of our favorites. SoulPepper is a fun theater group. I love how they committed, and the show went by in a flash. I'd recommend it.

Enchanting, Exquisite, Great staging, Masterful, Must see

See it if you want to laugh, be entertained, get goosebumps, listen to simple beautiful music and kid's poetry.

Don't see it if you want to see something serious with an actual plot (this is short poems that don't relate to each other).

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.”
