The Reviews Are In!
“Newton captures the innocent ignorance that makes clowning an engagement with humility and discovery.”
– The Portland Mercury
“Emily Newton stole the show. Her performance style is comparatively subtle, but so polished that she has merely to walk on stage to elicit laughter. Every scene she’s in is comedic gold.”
– Broadway World
“…complete and beautiful nonsense. Uniquely twisted and inane.”
– Plank Magazine
