    What the press had to say.....

    "As an introduction to Hugo, history, grand storytelling, skilled acting and the splendid possibilities of theater, �Hunchback,� combining eeriness, humor and classic storytelling, is a genuine Halloween treat."
    Lawrence Van Gelder
    New York Times

    "Is no happy meal.... the kids are spared little of the grimness of Hugo's classic novel." & " All the stage bustle seemed to keep the kids at the matinee performance reviewed fairly engrossed, and I guess they're the ones that count."
    Ron Cohen
    Back Stage

    "For children who need to get good and terrified this Halloween (and that's most of them), it would be hard to do better than "Hunchback." "The show has plenty of kid-friendly spectacle, yes, but it also retains the black, beating heart of Hugo's nobody-lives-happily-ever-after yarn."
