"Liao Zhai Rocks! is a spectacular production that hits the right notes and serves up ancient Chinese folklore as an entertaining extravaganza, palatable for all."
"The ensemble is a force to be reckoned with. They brought the performance energy up and kept the environment alive in every scene they were in."
Our theatre should aspire to objectively critique life, respectfully entertain audiences, and forever explore new uncharted territories. Based on this basic consensus, we shall debate among ourselves vigorously as we support each other loyally.
