    "Silly, sophisticated and altogether winning take on an ancient Greek myth." & "Intended for audiences 8 and older, ... rousing and amusing."
    Lawrence Van Gelder
    New York Times

    "A fun, friendly romp in streamlined-theatre style � two actors play all the roles, with the help of some Ken-doll-size figures and clever props." & "Makes for an engaging, sweet children's hour."
    Gwen Orel
    Back Stage

    "As entertainment for kids, "Jason and the Argonauts" scores points with genuinely frightening monsters, no end of swashbuckling action and a secretly-good-for-you wealth of classical knowledge sure to please parents. As professional theater, it succeeds (as usual for the New Vic) by offering the most bang for your buck for several blocks, and by showcasing a pair of deceptively complicated performances with a minimum of bells and whistles."
