"MAGICAL!... JAW-DROPPING!..." (NY Times review for Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea)

Posted on: Monday, October 3, 2016

"Theatergoers, there’s no need to pack scuba gear or even a snorkel mask to plunge into the ocean deep. In Craig Francis and Rick Miller’s “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea,” a frisky adaptation of the Jules Verne sci-fi saga at the New Victory Theater, a few actors, a few more props and some extremely nifty projections send the audience right to the seafloor. Hey, look out for that squid!... The acting is never less than zesty and the use of projections, courtesy of Deco Dawson, is sometimes jaw dropping. While the show’s creators haven’t made the environmental themes too stark or scolding, children and their grown-ups may think twice before buying and tossing another plastic water bottle. Even those deadly squids deserve an unpolluted ocean." (NY Times review)

Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea, created by Craig Francis and Rick Milller, is getting its USA premiere at The New Victory Theatre in NYC from Sep 28-Oct 10, 2016.
