New York Theatre Wire

"At a time when there is such an interest in immersive, interactive and mixed-media theater, it’s a bit ironic that the production which takes all this to the highest level of innovation is, in fact, a children’s show. 'Pip’s Island’ is a delightful adventure filled with music, dance and puppetry…All the environments are intriguing and unique...The actors take special care to make sure no child is left out of the fun. But most kids will be more than willing to join in the adventure." Full Review

Mommy Poppins

"Kids fully participate in the quest, helping to find, make, build, and carry items in order to move to the next scene...Each room is completely unique, combining props, lighting, sound, live action, puppets, and animation to create the scene...The actors ad lib humorous commentary throughout, tailoring comments to kids' reactions while evoking giggles from parents with witty sidebars...Well done! My daughters and I agree: it was a fantastic adventure that fully engaged kids' imaginations." Full Review

Red Tricycle

"A very fun, fantastical multimedia production…A musical, magical adventure that also happens to encourage creativity, problem-solving and teamwork…In addition to stellar sets and fun characters, the show also includes inventive and charming puppetry, as well as musical numbers, and even a dance party." Full Review

Pop Dose

"Kids love to be given a purpose and swept up in an adventure, and this one has an engaging narrative that explores several facets of learning, like imagination and building…This is a lively slice of edutainment, and we were happy to tag along with our explorers...They’ve rallied a first-class design team to conjure a variety of colorful spaces…An hour spent on 'Pip’s Island' with your family is one well spent, and my son gave it a five-star five-year-old review." Full Review

The New York Times

"As much a technological extravaganza as it is a theatrical experience — sometimes more so...What they offer is a fantasy adventure for theatergoers ages 4 through 10, who probably won’t care that you can learn more about the characters from the show’s website than from its script. The point is to play roles themselves — thrilling at any age — and to be dazzled along the way. And 'Pip’s Island' definitely dazzles." Full Review
