I would not recommend this to others. Although it was a neat concept, in the 45 minute performance the acting was equivalent to a high school show. It was not worth the price.

Review from Goldstar Member

The two actors who portrayed all the roles were excellent. The writer did a terrific job distilling the story into a less than hour performance. The audience was composed of extremely well behaved children who were enthralled despite the fact...continued

Review from Mary E. Collin

My hubby and I went to this matinee which is the first of a children's series at St. Luke's. Actor and actress (his wife) had lots of energy; humor was infused; props and costumes minimal but effective. Would not recommend for young children (less...continued

This was a great performance designed perfectly for children. The three children I took (ages 4 9 and 12) were equally captivated and really enjoyed the opportunity to meet the cast following. They were tremendous in the telling of the story and...continued

Review from shawn

I give this show a 3.5. The actors were great, I can't believe only 2 people played the entire cast. Was my first time at St. Lukes, so I wasnt sure what to expect. Location, location, location. Would've been even better if it would've been...continued

Review from Amanda

There really was no setting and the costume change was basically just masks so I don't know what cost so much money for a 50-minute show. You really need a lot of imagination, so it's appropriate for ages 6 and up I would say, not for my...continued

The show was nicely done. Must be open minded and able to use your imagination. Pretty low frills, but still enjoyable.

Review from Rose Deats

I absolutely love the story, but did not realize that it would be geared to a very young crowd. I brought my adult children because they always loved C.S Lewis. I was somewhat disappointed by the lack of props and actiors present. For example,...continued

Review from gpress

Really enjoyed the "local" feel of the event. The actors and door attendant were very personable and friendly. I am a school teacher to 5-7 year olds and realized quickly that I hadn't read enough of the description. It was very well done for that...continued

The 2 actors were really good and adaptation of the book was spot on.

Review from Nancy Holmes

This production was quite different from other theatre shows I've seen in the past with my daughter. It was done in narrative form with only two characters and minimal props. Although the actors did a great job, it wasn't visually enjoyable. No...continued

Review from Caroline Vespi

A nice surprise Off Broadway. The set is simple and the show relies heavily on the strength of the actors -- not all the bells and whistles of the larger Browadway productions. And delivers, it does. The two actors were stunningly talented as they...continued

Boring...just two actors, barely any props.
Not good for kids under 5.

Exceptional story telling with minimal props. My child is a 7 year old male with a short attention span. He was captivated by the actors and their ability to change characters. The play lasted 45 minutes and afterward he was able to take a...continued
