“A holiday show for people sick of holiday shows… and an epic story with hints of Disney and Greek myth in a warm-hearted family affair.” –The New York Times

“A big holiday helping of slapstick, madcap family fare…this fast-paced, campy romp shows the darker side of the Santa myth.” – Edge New York

“Marvelously sillyan authentic treat for harried minds…” – Stage and Cinema
