"I highly recommend taking your kids (7+) to learn a very valuable lesson about love. The performers are extremely talented, and the story, even though is very deep, is very engaging for both kids and adults."

"The house was packed with families and children, some of them very young. Mr. McAdams, in an excellent curtain speech, explained that the company brings a rigorous experience to the young people who participate and that rigor was to be expected in the evening’s performance. Indeed. There is cruelty and death in the show, as well as humor and joy... Under the excellent direction of Debbie Devine, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane is impeccably mounted by the first class creative staff of set designer Keith Mitchell; video designer Matthew Hill; lighting designer Dan Weingarten; sound designer Christopher Moscatiello; and costume and doll designer Shannon Kennedy. Brianna Zamora manages the stage with authority."

"We also get some beautiful harmonies and even a little bit of clowning in that hobo’s snarky dog. And, yes - there is carrot cake in the lobby afterwards - but that sweetness comes after a full-balanced meal of theater for young minds. I’d say it’s good for kids six and up but at the performance I saw there were some a couple years younger who managed the scary parts just fine."

"The show’s strength lies in the ensemble........And while the production may fall short in technical areas relative to those in the past, it still furnishes family entertainment of a superior caliber, benefitting our community."

"I spent the final minutes of Edward’s miraculous journey wiping well-earned tears from my eyes. Still, signature look or not, I can’t help wishing 24th Street Theatre had taken a brighter design path this time round. The Miraculous Journey Of Edward Tulane is grim enough as is without added darkness."
