“so amusing and thoughtful that I found myself wanting to know much more…”
“It looks like Jungle Theater has a holiday hit on its hands. It’s funny and fast-moving, with a “villain” you may love to hate. (Move aside, Scrooge.)”
-TWIN CITIES PIONEER PRESS
“This is world-class theatrical art, exceptional for the warmth of its execution and the breadth of its ambition…”
“Laughter rang through the theater with Mrs. Reynolds’ dry comments along Cassie’s clumsiness and high-spirited energy. Brian, an inventor at heart, stole the hearts of everyone in the theater (yes, including the men—if you don’t go for the humor, go for the ending—trust me, it’s worth it).”
