- "The two-person "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" by Le Clanche du Rand is fabulously written. For two actors to portray such a complex story and have it evolve so wonderfully is truly a playwriting gift!"
- Review by Jean Prall Rosolino, Youth Stages, Princeton, NJ
- "It was a good fit for us. It was short enough to keep children from getting too "antsy" and long enough to tell the story in an interesting way. Our beginner and veteran actors found it to be fun and challenging."
- Review by Sharon Seabolt, Noonday Baptist Church, Marietta, GA
- "We played to a full house in our little school. We'd set up 120 chairs -- they set up all the rest. Standing room. Director was witch. Excellent performance by everyone. Very well received by our community. Thank you!"
- Review by Brenda Harms, Champlain Valley Christian School, Vergennes, Vt.
- "Outstanding adaptation! Perfect for touring, and true to the story."
- Review by Melanie David, Waypoint Theatre Company, Oro Valley, Ariz.
- "This highly creative two-actor version of the C. S. Lewis classic engages the audience and captures the imagination more effectively than 180 million dollars of special effects."
- Review by Cindy Gensemer, Friends of the Groom, Inc., Terrace Park, Ohio
