Quotes & Highlights
“Four out of four stars … Over the years I’ve watched families leave this show moving closer together. … It’s moving, family-friendly, richly imaginative and distinctive.” —Chicago Tribune
“Instead of bratty kids and sugarplum fairies, Jake Minton and Phillip Klapperich’s tightly spun book introduces a family wracked by tragic loss. But magic still abounds, and in quantities that will bring a tear to the eye of even the stingiest Grinch. … it’s a nearly flawless, truly essential all-ages holiday show.” —Chicago Reader
