Click here to read the review in Broadway World - "Much is made of the short attention spans of the digital generation, but the Pumpkin Theatre knows how to keep their young audience in their seats. In the age of Youtube sensations, it's heartening to see children excited by live theater and performers who are not plastered all over the internet or TV."
