Clever, Delightful, Quirky, Entertaining, Refreshing

See it if Trio of enthusiastic artists perform music from around the world while dancing around the stage using odd props. Creative and fun.

Don't see it if You don’t enjoy a variety of cultural musical instruments. You want traditional theater rather than performance art.

Orlando Weekly
May 18th, 2017
For a previous production

“Melding lyrically loony musicianship with color guard-like choreography...Last time, the troupe tied their selections to the alphabet…For this edition, fewer segments means each one gets ample breathing room, especially the breathtaking ode to Antarctica using Cirque-like ‘hamster wheels’ which could be developed into a full show all its own. With broad appeal across all age groups, this year's three-peat proves that the positive buzz about this bunch is no fluke.”

Orlando Sentinel
May 18th, 2017
For a previous production

“Wonderfully inventive, artistic, creative and smart…They have the unique ability to not just play the music, but to seemingly become the music. The three are the real deal: highly talented musicians…Their transitions and introductions exhibit a deep understanding and love for their craft that they are able to transfer to the audience…Although they can each carry a tune, the vocal work is not nearly as strong or clean as when they play their instruments.”

Winnipeg Free Press
July 18th, 2017
For a previous production

“The talented Boston trio…takes the audience on a one-hour trip around the globe, from French Canada to Tuva, in this madcap mashup of music, dance and theatre…Standouts were a dramatic rendition of the Decemberists' ‘The Mariner's Revenge Song’… a movement from Vaughn Williams' ‘Sinfonia Antartica’ and a saucy Argentine tango by Astor Piazzolla.”

Cherry and Spoon
August 9th, 2017
For a previous production

“This trio is so creative. I have literally never seen anyone do what they do, and that alone is reason to see them…It's also an extremely fun and entertaining show that flies by, while also educating and exposing the audience to various composers and music styles past and present...These cats make playing instruments cool. My favorite fringe moments are those ‘how do they even think of doing that?!’ kind of moments, and this show is chock full of them...A must see!”
