Washington Post - Somewhat Recommended

"...Daileader's genially blustering Long John Silver is often droll, and Scott Whalen's ditsy, tottering version of the long-marooned Ben Gunn is at least distinctive, but many of the other characterizations are garden variety. Even Jane's spunkiness, as interpreted by Flowers from the adaptation's cursorily signaled traits, registers as rather generic, while some of the lines come straight from Stevenson, and the cast's mostly pedestrian speaking styles sap the dialogue of any flair."

"...Tori Tolentino's love of the Stevenson tale is evident in her adaptation and direction of this production. She balances a respect for her source material with a keen desire to create a response to it that is more inclusive and immersive. On the evening that I attended, there were several young children in the audience. Tolentino's work gives them a vision of adventure that is open to all."

DCTheatreScene - Highly Recommended

"...The story unfolds with edge-of-your-seat excitement and a magnificent use of the evocative scenic elements and atmospheric lighting, designed respectively by Phil Charlwood and Paul Callahan. Not a literal representation of a seaside tavern, an English sailing ship or the ubiquitous desert island, the setting provides a malleable, stylized landscape that changes as required by the rapid pace and climactic action sequences. Resident composer Konstantine Lortkipanidze provides the proper heightened reality - sumptuous and sonorous sounds that swell like the waves crashing on the surf."
