When Walt Disney hears 'The Rite of Spring,' he envisions the creation of the earth, volcanoes and, of course, dinosaurs! But composer Igor Stravinsky has another vision altogether. In this provocative comedy, we go behind the scenes of Disney’s classic 'Fantasia,' where the dinosaurs aren’t the only ones doing battle.

for a previous production “An immensely entertaining new work…The spirited banter between the great men is chock-full of clever witticisms...Initially, their argument feels obvious and predictable...However, in the second act, the play begins to add more layers, as the world outside, the war, and the financial pressures weighing both men down add much more reality to the fantasy…Director Joe Brancato has wisely allowed the text to do the talking, providing a clean and uncluttered production.” Full Review

The New York Times

for a previous production “A friendly and sometimes provocative comedy…Simply yet smoothly directed by Joe Brancato…'Small World’ has an interesting premise, and the first act of this eager-to-please material establishes their personalities well…The volume rises on debates with unsurprising refrains, circular and tiresome. Act II digs deeper…The actors pitch their performances to match the exaggerated, conjectured duel of ideas. Mr. D’Ambrose is a particularly convincing pleasure as Stravinsky.” Full Review
