"From time to time, one attends a show in which there are no superlatives worthy of describing the experience. Tags such as stupendous, dazzling, wonderful and fantastic pale in comparison to the performance. It is almost as if an entire new dialog of phrases used to praise the work is needed to properly edify it."
"Shadowbox Live actor Tom Cardinal, the spitting image of a sober, sane Poe, provided narration that set up the scenario in which Prince Prospero followed Red Death from room to room in the doomed palace. Each room or scene alluded to a Poe story or poem; Annabel Lee, Fall of the House of Usher, The Bells, The Raven, Eleanora, The System of Dr. Tarr and Prof. Fether, and The Pit and the Pendulum."
"The rock opera-styled ballet that had its world premiere at the Breen Center for the Performing Arts at St. Ignatius High School on Friday night had enormous potential, given Verb’s talented dancers, Poe’s iconic poems and stories, and the brilliant musical talents of Columbus-based Shadowbox Live."
