What Audiences are Saying about The Amazing Adventures of Harvey and the Princess

Draws Young Theatergoers with the Power of Pretending

In this season of holiday excess, Harvey serves as a refreshing reminder that exhilarating fun can be created from the simplest of ingredients: thin air.

What’s most rewarding, however, is the way the show draws young theatergoers with the power of pretending.

That the music and lyrics are by Laurie Berkner contributes to the appeal of the production. Ms. Berkner’s work here ranges from sweet, folk-inflected ballads to a semi-snarled rap for the petulant princess.

New York City Children’s Theater, formerly Making Books Sing, has adapted Loryn Brantz’s “Harvey the Child Mime” into its latest musical…Fortunately, this company can still make a book sing.

A Treat for Music and Theater-Loving Families

New York City Children’s Theater’s production of The Amazing Adventures of Harvey and the Princess is a treat for music and theater-loving families.

[As] the main characters, Laura Hankin and Ben Laxton, engaged young children while bringing a lovely story to life. Sarah Charles and Liam Fennecken seamlessly morphed into multiple characters, bridging the best parts of the story with imagination and grace.

I appreciate that this is a preschooler-friendly production that keeps even the littlest theater-goer engaged.

New York City Children’s Theater is well known for making books sing, and Barbara Zinn Krieger did just that with this production. Laurie Berkner wrote the songs and lyrics, which made this production fantastic and fun.

Full of Imagination!

The book by Artistic Director Barbara Zinn Krieger is full of imagination and I was thrilled that the story sends a positive message to kids and parents: “spend time together.”

The princess, portrayed by Laura Hankin, is simply adorable.

Sometimes simplicity is all you need to get the point across. We left the theater uplifted by the positive energy

I loved the fun, upbeat music by the popular Laurie Berkner

Refreshing!

Let me tell ya… Barbara Zinn Krieger and Laurie Berkner have done it again! Not only is the show cute, but the actors are engaging and there are parts of the show that are interactive with the audience.

In this day and age that’s filled with stuff and things and gifts and prizes… and more gifts and more things, it’s refreshing to see a show that emphasizes the importance of just… being.

Thank You for a Great Adventure

I took my grandson to see The Amazing Adventures of Harvey and the Princess and he loved it. He even took a picture with the cast and I have a video of him dancing with one of the actors on stage. We also saw Wanda’s Monster. Your cast for both was wonderful. Thank you for such a great adventure.
