reviews THE MIRACULOUS JOURNEY OF EDWARD TULANE, Childsplay

"what a miraculous journey it is.  it comes alive before your eyes and sweeps you up into the warmth and comfort of its arms.  David Saar’s assured direction keeps Edward Tulane moving at a brisk pace throughout as the ever touching story takes us from Abilene’s house on Egypt street, to the liner, the bottom of the ocean, on a train ride across country, a diner, and eventually back to where it all began but with a difference.   There will be moments when your heart will both soar with the magic of what great theatre can create – and this is quite simply great theatre – and break with the heartache of loss and loneliness.   Watching this magical production come alive before you is not only a wonderful way to be entertained, it’s a privilege.   I can’t make this any simpler: you have to see The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane.  - David Appleford - Valley Screen and Stage

""What it means to love and be loved" is the important life lesson at the center of the moving, touching and beautiful Childsplay production of The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. Combining the power of theatre with the journey of self-discovery isn't something new, yet this tale of a china rabbit doll who learns to love will touch your heart, stay with you, and most likely make you shed a few tears. The combination of the beautiful story, the inventive design elements, and the extremely talented cast are a perfect example for theatregoers young and old to see how theatre can transport us to different places and how it can inspire us and make us think. Childsplay's The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane is a celebration of the magic of theatre and the wonder of life. - Gil Benbrook - Talkin' Broadway
