“Director/Choreographer Jon Martinez lands a triple axel while pushing the edge of straight-up silliness. He skates the line between drama and comedy. His energetically-executed choreography oozes elements evocative of George M Cohen, Twyla Tharp, and many others.” - Performink
“It’s a fabulously weird and legitimately experimental musical presented in a time when they’re too hard to come by.” - Chicago Reader
