    Great show. There is so much to appreciate and enjoy about this show. From the music to the acting to the characters to the scenic design to the feeling you are left with after the show ends.

    Ya gotta see it. Come on.

    Saw this show in NYC at an off-broadway venue. Incredibly imaginative and so well-performed. Katie and Nick portray youth with insight, humor, and creepiness!

    Highly recommend anyone attending the KC Fringe add this gem to your schedule of Must-See shows.

    Cannot recommend this one enough!!! It’s endearing, creative, creepy, innocent and cruel all at once. The creative use of space as well as lighting and musical instruments absolutely delighted the theater nerd in me. Make sure to see this before it’s gone!!!

    Absolutely LOVED the show. I picked up on one EAP story reference at the end but I’m now wondering how many I missed?! Highly recommend you see this one.

    It was simply amazing. Excellent acting/performing/singing shops and clever writing. Funny enough to be disarming and creepy enough to unsettle you well after the show. Please come back next year!

    Genuinely have not enjoyed a show this thoroughly in a very long time. If I could get it on CD I 100% would. Besides the singing and music being absolutely magical, this is truly what I would call masterful storytelling. Beautiful from beginning to the end. Fantastic writing and fantastic acting!!!! Do NOT miss this. It is one of the best things I have ever seen.

    I have not so genuinely enjoyed a show in a long time. If I could keep this on a CD I absolutely would!!! Besides the singing and music being so very magical, this is what I would truly call masterful storytelling. Fantastic writing, FANTASTIC acting. I would watch it many more times if I could. Do not miss this. It was so so so lovely and so so so imaginative.

    Unsettling and adorable. You can enjoy it at face value or drift into shadow-dancing with it. Completely engaging either way!

    Late posting this but what an amazing show. The physicality and the story were both riveting

    Fantastic storytelling by 2 power house performers. This show was a treat from beginning to end.
