Absorbing, Original, Great staging, Great acting, Enchanting

See it if You enjoy great actors. And heartfelt adventure stories. And beautiful masks. And an extraordinary use of ordinary things.

Don't see it if You expect brand new, original work to be polished. This show is taking its first steps and those steps are beautiful.

Theatre is Easy
August 22nd, 2016

"What this production lacks is a cohesive story: the scenes jump from one to another without consistent transitions. The narrator doesn’t introduce the characters with clarity, which makes the show difficult to follow...Additionally, the use of traditional Peking opera masks is both inaccurate and negligent with respect to the cultural traditions from which this piece draws…I hope this team continues to work on the show. It is a magical tale with valuable messages."

Nitelife Exchange

"What a well-oiled machine is this ensemble company…This dance-based performance really has done a lovely, lovely and well-thought-out job bringing to life a published book by Grace Lin…A 'story-theatre' style presentation that combines narration, dialogue, and soundscape, addressing the audience directly and economically conveying the story and its admirable messages about generosity and gratitude and faith is admirable and works beautifully…'A' grades all around!"
