“A frantic fable for our times … a mixture of exuberance and defiance … raucous, free-swinging fun … the enormous energy of the show keeps it sailing triumphantly” – Chicago Tribune

“A dazzling young cast … an exuberant satire with a rock and roll heart … an original, entertaining, youthfully brash and often very moving piece of theatre” – Chicago Sun-Times

“Loaded with laughs, music and mayhem” – Lerner Newspapers
