"...might as well be "Carroll meets Stravinsky" for all its singsong language underscored by Matt Test’s remarkable staccato sound design." -Chloe Riley, Chicago Reader
"...top-flight foley design." - Kerry Reid, Chicago Tribune"
"The excellent 15-person cast creates haunting sound effects ( hollow pipes, flute, harmonica, saw, violin, wooden frog, etc. ) suggesting the eerie water world and supplying texture to this simply told but richly complex piece." - Johnathan Abarbanel, Windy City Times
"...impressive Foley soundscape, both music and sound effects. Live instrumentation lends an air of old-time hootenanny." -Alex Huntsberger, Time Out Chicago
"Thrilling Compositional Skills...Test's Score - filled with jarring yet inevitable progressions through harmonics and intervals as daring as Britten's or Sondheim's - consistently dazzles." -Justin Hayford, Chicago Reader
