Ambitious, Clever, Exquisite, Must see

See it if a very good play especially to bring the kids to. It will keep there attention I promise. A very good rendition.

Don't see it if If you do not like CS or if you are not a person bringing your children to see it.

Disappointing, Slow

See it if you shouldn't

Don't see it if very little effort was put it in to it except by the actors. good acting, but needs a little bit more.

"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."
