Clever, Thought-provoking, Delightful

See it if you enjoy Animal Behavioral sciences. Ms. Rossellini is quite enjoyable as is her dog.

Don't see it if you are squeamish about sexual reproduction; if you are not scientifically inclined or don't enjoy science shows.

Intelligent, Quirky, Entertaining, Thought-provoking

See it if you enjoy Rossellini's "Green Porn" series & want to see her expound further on animal behavior in her unconventional but informative way.

Don't see it if you're a science denier, you have zoophobia, or you expect more "circus" and less "lecture" from Isabella's show.

Quirky, Thought-provoking, Refreshing, Enchanting, Clever

See it if You love Isabella Rossellini in anything, you appreciate off-beat presentations, or you have a soft spot for animals (who doesn't?).

Don't see it if You prefer conventional theater or if you are adverse to learning while also being entertained.

The Hollywood Reporter
April 21st, 2019

"Rossellini's enthusiasm for the subject is infectious as she delivers an enjoyable lecture encompassing scientific theories about animal sentience, referencing philosophers and scientists...Rossellini proves a delightful instructor, cheerfully willing to look ridiculous or make fun of herself to make her points...Executing tricks on demand and hitting every cue with a professionalism that would put most Broadway performers to shame, Pan emerges as the true star of the evening."

“One of the brainiest shows in town...Though better known to the world as a model, actor and filmmaker, Rossellini is also a scholar in the ways of animal behavior and an activist for wildlife conservation...Charming and intellectually stimulating.”

New York Stage Review
April 27th, 2019

"A modestly astonishing 80-minute discussion...Through it Rossellini examines the 'links' between animals and humans. She’s interested in how animals learn—demonstrating that they do learn but pointing out that learning doesn’t necessarily equate with thinking...Moreover and thanks to her seemingly impromptu, carefully worked-out production, the audience has learned plenty and in an undeniably astonishing way."

"Enchanting exploration containing scientific tidbits where she is joined by her dog and a puppeteer for a delightful 80 minutes. Dressed in costume designer Fanny Karst’s fabulous modernistic take on a ringmaster’s uniform with flowing red tails, Rossellini is radiant as she holds forth in her cheery distinctive accented voice...Animal trainer extraordinaire Bill Berloni guided Darcy’s magnificent performance."

"There are moments when Ms Rossellini clearly needed to rely very heavily on her notes, and at times she seemed to stumble on her memorized monologue pieces, both in narrative and delivery...Although this is not exactly a compelling night at the theater, the results are an entertaining and incredibly informative performance piece about the link between animal behavior and human behavior, that animal lovers across the board will no doubt enjoy."

"She is voracious and insistent. And because this is her passion, she has little trouble passing on the passion to us. What gets in the way is everything else. The evening is basically a dissertation defense and as such is fascinating. The addition of props, a puppeteer and especially her dog, Pan, is not only unnecessary, but it is distracting...She is an utterly charming presence on the stage. She can afford to keep it simple."

Theatre's Leiter Side
April 29th, 2019

"An absolutely charming 'theatrical conference' on Rossellini's academic research and conclusions...Coltish and didactic, charming and effective, the work is a must see for any animal lover…The work, though, is rarely desultory, and while silly, never capricious. An erudite, natural performer who communicates with great confidence and focus, Rossellini is refreshingly playful and informative…Rossellini is genuinely fascinated in the subject matter and shares it with an open heart."

“This charming, informative show was proceeded by award winning productions and short films...also comically and scientifically exploring animal behavior...Our host is thoughtful, smart and utterly irresistible. Direction is well paced, density of information clearly communicated in acted and animated film as well as appealing demonstration. Considered subjects are wide ranging...Delightful evening.”
