The New Yorkers of the Year Article from the NY Times
Julie Atlas Muz and Mat Fraser, New Yorkers of the Year

"Jack and the Beanstalk’ Is a Holiday Treat Worth Savoring… I hope it will set an example for local family programming for many holidays to come… A stark departure from the slick, corporate-flavored entertainment that often dominates the holidays."

"The show keeps a light touch when it comes to pointed references, preferring to deliver a message of inclusion and generosity — along with copious helpings of delectably terrible puns, of course… Fine, Britain, you win: We will have panto. But by all means, keep Marmite.”

 “Endearing and fun; A topically themed panto with delightfully outlandish costumes and excellent songs...the iconic pop tunes for which Fraser has fashioned new lyrics, and the cast’s uniformly excellent singing.”

"This inclusive and exuberant mayhem will leave you overjoyed and hopeful / for the battles to come. Frequently messy—quite literally, during a wonderful pie-in-the-face segment… Many shows for kids preach diversity, community and acceptance, but the gleeful, glittery and gangly Jack & the Beanstalk embodies those qualities."
