Clever, Enchanting, Great acting, Refreshing

See it if you are looking for a wonderfully done show that depends on the imagination of the actors and the audience and you loved the original book.

Don't see it if you only like big budget shows with giant sets.

"The epic nature of C.S. Lewis's timeless books has been transformed to adorable, simple charm. The clever bare-bones staging let's the audience's imagination run wild. 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe' is filled with amusing moments sure to keep children and grown-ups enthralled for it's brief 45 minute running time: a worthy, often magical, inaugural play."

"It's a children's show, enjoyable to adults yet fashioned for kids, but telling such a complex tale in under an hour with only two actors might require a little help from a whispering grown-up if the child hasn't read the story. I thoroughly enjoyed the show from start to finish, and my daughter ended up having a good time by the end."
