Top notch children's theater, Imaginative, Strong visuals, Talented ensemble, Engrossing

See it if you've a kid in tow. Clever adaptatns of HCA's stories. Gr visuals. Funny. Poignant. Well-paced. Charming performances (Wiesel's emperor!)

Don't see it if you're looking for adult theater. You'll love seeing this through a child's eyes, but the target audience is not adults.

“Inventive staging and stellar design...As devoted to making children reflect as to making them laugh...When Death comes for the grief-stricken ruler, and the real nightingale’s song revives him, the moment isn’t just happy — it is as poignant as Andersen might have wished.”
