A theater full of kids and only 1 under 2 had to leave., Great staging, Ambitious, Bloodthirsty

See it if you like constant movement. an interesting smash up of themes. I loved the set and use of props creatively changing with the story.

Don't see it if If you don't like to see energetic actors working really hard. you object to war themes and virtual blood letting in a children's play. Read more

Good for children's theater but not up to atlantic theater's reputation

See it if You are bringing kids & are ok with talk of war & fighting - later hammering swords into whisks

Don't see it if Atlantic Children's theater is usually worth adult attendance & usually they are strong musicals, not this time but energetic storytelling

Delightful, Enchanting, Refreshing, Great staging, Entertaining

See it if you have kids! Atlantic for Kids has done it again! Another charming play for kids that adults can enjoy. A good story, well told!

Don't see it if you can't get up on a Sunday morning for a 10:30 a.m. curtain!

"The cast of young actors are, simply put, divine. Acting, singing, dancing, building and breaking down the set and making the magic of it appear effortless. This ensemble is flawless. The co-direction of Beatty and Costello is a rocket ship to the stars. Propelling us into other worlds with their staging and ingenious crafting of set and props. They have fashioned, with the writing of Kruckemeyer, a joyous time at the theatre...Kruckemeyer has created a new kind of magical mythical fairy tale."

"Like all worthwhile adventures, 'This Girl'...starts down a familiar path, hits a fork in the road, and then goes off in unanticipated and delightful directions...This is no-tech storytelling theater at its most inventive, with eight multitasking cast members portraying numerous characters, sharing narration duties, and even playing music...It's certainly refreshing to see a show with...three female leads who are all so different, and a narrative that easily passes the Bechdel test."
