The Seattle Times says our production of Treasure Island “checks all the boxes for a good pirate story: colorful characters, plenty of action and a crackling Long John Silver.”
“The ensemble is absolutely top notch and each look to be having a blast as they get to play pirate making the childlike glee of the piece shine through.” – BroadwayWorld Seattle.
