Petit Rouge: A Cajun Red Riding Hood

Review by peanutduck

Is acting down to kids requisite to sustain interest? Technique makes actors appear pained versus Rebecca Kimball’s Claude the Alligator - bold, sassy, with open-armed unleashing-the-child-within flair that works on child (scary) and adult (indulgent laughter) levels. Playful: live band, complete with accordion and pots ‘n pans; down-and-dirty pickle-tubbed bayou.

A completely fun show. I would have enjoyed more music and less text, but still delightful. Rebecca Kimball's Alligator is worth the price of admission alone.
