"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." Full Review

"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."
