Published Reviews

"If farce at its best is a clever blend of the expected and the unexpected then True Magic deserves straight A's."

William Menezies, Brattleboro Reformer (Vermont)

"...a play that celebrates the fantasy of Christmas, where good feelings and happy endings abound, and where wishes have magic all their own."

Carolyn Wardle, Las Vegas Review-Journal

"True Magic casts a spell that's hard to resist."

Edith Decker, Grants Pass Daily Courier (Oregon)

"True Magic is light, family entertainment. The show is as comfortable as a Christmas stocking."

Al Reiss, The Mail Tribune (Oregon)
