Poignant Absurdist Theatre

Deftly balances joy and comedy, with the fraught triumphs of the human spirit, on tightrope walk over a metropolis of imagination.

Excellent

Lost for words, there’s a bit of everything here and it’s all amazing.

Magical

A lot of people find Julian irritating and so did I, but he really grows on you. It sounds like childhood wonder. I really enjoyed it. Still wondering if they were saying pie eating Cossack or Kazakh.
