My overall impression

Wonderful little play right near the heart of Hollywood! The audience is gently dumped into Michael’s world, which brilliantly anthropomorphizes the difficult struggle of balancing harsh reality and illustrious imagination. All the performers are top form, easily snapping between their (eerily accurate) six year old characters and adult counterparts, and the coziness of The Elephant House brings the perfect atmosphere to let you in on the adventure with them. Echoing The Phantom Tollbooth’s wish to live in “one city as easy to see as Illusions and as hard to forget as Reality,” Obviously Michael will make you laugh and think and feel a little wistful for a childhood past.
