Review:

"Part vaudeville, part mystical dreamscape and Eastern-inflected ballet, Zimmerman's meticulously choreographed production is a fabulous balancing act that stunningly juxtaposes the rambunctious energy and low comedy of a Wizard of Oz-like trip with the lyrical beauty of Chinese poetry and the mysterious revelations of a religious search. There is not a second in the show that does not contain a character-revealing gesture, an awe inspiring sense of nature, or a dazzling example of the artist's gift for invention." --"Chicago Sun-Times"
