From Cherry and Spoon "Despite being written almost 60 years ago in a country on the other side of the planet, Blood Knot, currently playing at Pillsbury House Theatre, feels very relevant to the here and now."http://bit.ly/cs_bloodknot

The Broadway tour of "Dear Evan Hansen" has a stop at Hennepin Theatre Trust's Orpheum Theatre through June 9, 2019. Several bloggers, and thousands of fans, are attending this modern musical with important themes of suicide, social anxiety, grief, and connecting.
From Twin Cities Stages "...a show that illuminates what the future of the theater will look like. A future where our digital lives are not only integrated into plot but where the technology of our world of screens and projectors makes it possible to transform and stage a story." http://bit.ly/2WaZEaN
From Play off the Page "The creators of Dear Evan Hansen explore some heavy themes in this dramatic musical about suicide, family, fitting in, feeling alone, social anxiety, and grief." http://bit.ly/2Kd3QVj
From PhenoMNal Twin Cities "(It has) all the components of a smash hit, evidenced by its relentless success, nine Tony nominations, and six wins–including Best Musical. The story is compelling; the music is undeniable." https://www.phenomnaltwincities.com/review-dear-evan-hansen/
From Cherry and Spoon "The small-cast non-flashy musical deals with pretty serious issues like suicide, mental illness, grief, and the dangers of social media, although not without humor and a fantastic Pasek and Paul score. Most importantly, it delivers a message of connection and hope that this world needs." http://bit.ly/cs_evan

Cherry and Spoon: "All of the actors do a fantastic job of bringing these ancient tales to life and making them feel so now, making these archetypal characters seem real, human, funny, tragic"

Play off the Page "This is a beautiful, fluid play filled with poetic language, gods and humans searching, longing, and living, and reflecting on life and loss"
