This show has managed to take almost every classic theatre convention in the book: Shadow/light box visuals, puppetry, scale, music, spectacle, dance, poetry -- and merge them into a really beautiful piece. Aristotle would be proud. Like torn chapters out of a book, we follow true origin stories of women from folklore who have been victimized, damned to eternity, wrongfully accused and overall, screwed over. These stories are narrated by an ensemble member while other the rest of the cast, through multiple mediums, act/dance/pantomime the visuals. This is a cast comprised completely of young women who share every duty on stage. There is no "lead" player; everyone is just as essential as the next. There is a small folk band with an ac... full review

I felt as though it took a classical approach to storytelling incorporating multiple facets of Theatre into the production. i saw influences from ancient Italian with the utilization of masks and influences from the Greeks with the presence of what seemed like a chorus. when you entered into the Studio/Stage you were instantly teleported to what seemed like a different universe where women were allowed to be free of men's control and oppression and they can truly tell their stories as they see fit. ... full review

MICHAEL FONTAINE my haunt life certified reviewer June 20, 2017
This has been the most impressive show I’ve seen so far. This show takes a look at classic stories, through wonderful storytelling that uses visuals, singing, dance, and music from a live band, where a woman is blamed for doing something wrong. The amount of talent on that stage is second to none. I think there were around 12-15 people (including the band) and each one of them had their own highlights during the show. With that many people on a small stage, you might think there was some frantic chaos, but it was definitely the opposite. What you did see was wonderfully orchestrated choreography that will make you be in awe of the intricacies of people weaving. It’s a beautiful thing to see and experience. Angelic voices, radiant da... full review
