“The Children’s Theatre Company version of Puss in Boots may be the sassiest theatricalization of a fairy tale ever seen on stage. Also one of the happiest.” –Minneapolis Tribune

“Playwright Holland has a knack for the witty one-liner, the funny turn of logic and ironic twist.” –St. Paul Pioneer Press
