About the show

Following its sold-out run in 2011, New Victory is bringing back Scotland's Catherine Wheels Theatre Company and their kid-friendly tale about two buddies who battle to keep the world color-free. More…

Cotton and Wrinkle are the careful custodians of a colorless world. These beanie-wearing buddies work hard to hide every hint of hue. When pops of color suddenly appear, their orderly lives are thrown into a fantastic frenzy! This is a vivid work of modern theater that is the only show for the very young to be nominated for a Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience. 'White' is a whimsical experience for all ages.

Clever, Delightful, Funny, Refreshing, Perfect for our 2 1/2 year old greatgranddaughter

See it if This show: were intelligent, challenging, respectful of a young child's sensibilities. Our 2 1/2 year old was totally absorbed by the plot.

Don't see it if If you think Disney is the h]eight of child entertainment, this delightful, low key, show is not for you.

Charming, Inventive, Simple but powerful, For young at heart, Wonderful

See it if You are open to being charmed and delighted by a simple, well-told, beautifully staged story. Reactions of the littles are part of the fun.

Don't see it if You can't abide being around young children, disdain "kids' stuff" and have lost the capacity for simple wonder.

Mesmerizing, Wonderful, Enchanting, Creative set, Masterful

See it if you want to be enchanted by a simple story with very little talking. The set is beautiful and surprising. I never stopped smiling, just go.

Don't see it if being in an audience full of little kids isn't your thing, or if you want an intellectual, challenging play. You don't want to be awed.

Clever, Entertaining, Great writing

See it if This was much better than I expected but nothing hugely orginal here.

Don't see it if You expect a major production. It suffers in design.

Enchanting, Profound, Delightful, Wondrous

See it if You would like to bring young children.

Don't see it if You are ill-tempered.

for a previous production "It is as gossamerlike and insubstantial as some of the fluffy materials in the set, qualities that mostly charm but sometimes detract...But enough grown-up grousing. You may know that color will triumph, but you don’t know how, and that’s where 'White' proves thrilling. Ingeniously designed, the...

for a previous production "Gill Robertson’s direction is sharp and strong, with real moments of tension, excitement and wonder which constantly leave the audience wondering what surprise is coming up next...'White' is what theatre is all about, striking performances, enchanting set, and above all true, moving and powerful...

for a previous production "'White' is as playful and as serious as one of Beckett’s terse mime plays. In Gill Robertson’s superb production, the clowning makes clever, subtle use of the actor’s opposing physicalities...'White' holds an important moral message about difference for an audience of two- to four-year-olds."

for a previous production "My children were mesmerized by the sweet music, floating feathers, twinkling lights and quirky set...'White' is recommended for children ages 2-5 and I think parents should stick to that, if possible...At 40 minutes, it's a great choice for first-time theatergoers."
