This was a really good use of space and props to simulate all of the time jumps. I really liked the show for the quality with the content of the story slightly hard to follow, although that is how the book is.

“Dazzlingly mounted…a challenging evening of theatre and Brian Katz and company pull this off with a grand style.” -Richard Connema, Talkin’ Broadway

“Collectively, the cast paints a compelling picture that reflects Vonnegut’s creation: a fusion of war story, bizarre science-fiction adventure and a quirky portrait of Americana” Leo Stutzin, The Huffington Post
