Published Reviews

"Yep, this is Treasure Island done right."

Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune

"...smart, funny, often savage..."

Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times

"...nothing short of stunning...we're confident this production could blow the others out of the water."

Suzy Evans, The Chicagoist

"It's a fun high-seas adventure for everyone."

Lisa Buscani, New City

"On the one hand, this is a violent and sobering story thick with casual, brutal killing and unbridled greed. On the other hand, it's rich with wry humor, even if that humor is often as black as Blackbeard's beard."

Catey Sullivan, Chicago Theatre Blog
