"...Tolentino is immensely likable as Callaway, an engaging avatar for the audience - the stakes feel higher because we're making choices with him. He makes a nice journey from a sheltered youngster to brave adventurer with every new path. Tolentino is also the co-movement director and brings a heightened sense of danger as he pulls off a number of impressive physical feats. The simple set for Peligro Island - a few platforms and a lot of hidden compartments - makes full use of the power of the physical body to create things like dangerous spikes, underground tunnels and the like, and the way Tolentino plays off of each of these helps create a fully-realized world."

DCTheatreScene - Highly Recommended

"...Everything about this show is top notch. The acting (superb!), direction (brava, Kathryn Chase Bryer!), the wit (such clever writing!), the set (an airport that doubles as an evil lair!), and the handling of audience participation (blue and red panels!), which is guided by Tori Tolentino who also jumps in to film scenes close-up which are then projected to perfect effect. Both Shearer and Bilden take on a couple of roles, including narrators who act, almost, as Callaway's conscious, but they shine in their primary ones: Shearer as all the resident bad guys, including a (potentially) Eastern European henchman with a harpoon who chose this profession when his medical ambitions didn't pan out, and Bilden as the mysterious man, who we learn is one Giles Fezick, spy extraordinaire. Shearer and Bilden skip through personas with ease and imbue each with laugh-out-loud idiosyncrasies that are good fun for adult and child alike."
