“‘Endangered’ will have you snapping your fingers and tapping your feet. Each animal has an individual personality, and they are well physicalized. The fabulous and fun costumes by Collin Ranney lend both a comic as well as outrageous touch to each one’s characterization…They are all tremendously talented…‘Endangered’ is a wonderfully entertaining show. Although it is geared toward children...it also delivers an important message for our time.” Full Review
“It’ll keep both toddlers and school-aged kids entertained...It even comes with an important lesson that kids will remember long after they leave the theater...The music was indeed uplifting and catchy...Scurlock is the undeniable star of the show. Her incredibly powerful voice is very special. Theo Errig, as the kid, was adorable and had a sweet voice…The show was fun and energetic. I loved that there was a message for the kids that they could easily understand and relate to.” Full Review
“Both compulsively entertaining and ecologically friendly…Laced with levity and wit…If you want your children to receive a tuneful tutorial on environmental justice...‘Endangered’ is your ticket to a great afternoon of self-assured, entertaining drama. Fine has delivered an urban ‘Lion King’ without the 'Hamlet' high jinks but replete with the passions of this political and cultural moment. And there’s much for the adults to benefit from Fine’s received wisdom, too.” Full Review
