Published Reviews

"George Herman's Nine Dragons is a straightforward morality play that reads like an ancient Chinese folktale... The result is a sumptuous visual treat."

Joseph T. Rosmiarek, Honolulu Star-Bulletin

"[A] skillfully turned fable on human cooperation set in a cunningly clever combination of entertainment and philosophy... The result is comfortable and comforting, and the script is a delight."

Pierre Bowman, Honolulu Advertiser
