"The marvelously gifted Ilyse Robbins, with her amazing and diverse talents for direction and choreography has lifted Barlow’s wildly playful adaption to new Monty Python’esque heights." - Susan Mulford, Boston and Beyond

"Director Ilyse Robbins and her talented cast (including Russell Garrett and K.P. Powell as Clown 1 and Clown 2 respectively) make the intricate physical comedy bits look effortless – meaning they’re anything but – which isn’t surprising given Robbins’ background as a multiple IRNE and Norton Award winning choreographer (and musical theater director)." - Michael Hoban, Theater Mirror


"It wouldn’t be an Ilyse Robbins-directed production without some comic choreography worked into the show, providing some hilarious moments. And Robbins’ solid direction and seasoned cast keeps the rocket-paced production from running off the rails." - Rich Fahey, On Boston Stages

"Directed imaginatively by llyse Robbins, this dynamic crime noir boasts plenty of vintage flair as well as adventure, romance, comedy, and suspense.  However, what really makes this show such fun is that it doesn’t take itself too seriously." - Jeanne Denizard, The Sleepless Critic
