What fun!

I remember when I wanted to be the first woman astronaut, but I have motion sickness, so it never happened. This was a cute play about dreams and ambition. Great use of shadow puppet. Pure entertainment.

You can tell these people are funny, and you can tell these people are talented...but were they improvising the majority of this show? If not, they should tell people they were.

Didn't make orbit.

I expected a lot more out of this group of talent, but in the end was disappointed. Much of the performance seemed to be acted with a wink and a nod, as if sharing our agreement that the script contained little of story or interest.

Needs some ignition

Mostly convincing performers. A cute story. Funny shadow puppets. But oh so slow. The dialog needed ignition--the show could have been done in 30 minutes instead of 50.

Some good laughs and a dash of pathos in a story of a man's dream and how it affects his son's hope of being a spaceman. The shadow puppetry is good. A Shockwave Radio Theater Review.

I saw a version of this show in the fall of 2007. I don't know how much overlap in cast/production there is now, but I really enjoyed it then. If you know your Greek myths, this story might seem a little familiar. It didn't strike me until the very end, as I watched the haunting, perfectly executed conclusion.
