Published Reviews

"...an impeccably solid piece of theatrical work...the whole thing thrilling from swash to buckle..."

Terry Teachout, The Wall Street Journal

"...enthralls and delights its audiences with glorious costumes and sets, masterful fight sequences, finely tuned characterizations, a literate script and challenging themes..."

Michael P. Howley, The Montgomery Advertiser

"...a story of heart-breaking romance and seat grappling adventure..."

Jamie Foster, Montgomery City Guide

"Richly rewarding...fully satisfies any need for romantic intrigue..."

Claudia Harris, The Salt Lake Tribune

"...fabulously entertaining, not to mention meaningful and important. It's theatre at its finest: well acted and directed, with plenty of fun and excitement, and a bit of a 'take-home' message too."

Eric D. Snider, Provo Daily Herald

"...an immensely engaging evening of theatre...a wonderful and rich example of expert storytelling..."

Jeff Murphy, Delaware News Journal
