“Iridescent spectacle that drenches the senses in light and sound. It is something for the kids and also for grown-ups. The magic of the theatre, the magic of diversion, the magic that compels one to say ‘That’s Entertainment’.” -New York Times
“Famous PEOPLE Players are rather more than a bunch of enthusiastic theatrical artists living out a precious dream in a manner that’s startlingly unique.” – Toronto Star
