 From Kansas City Star:

“Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise.” The famous passage from Matthew citing the intrinsic wisdom of children might also apply to the unexpectedly profound seasonal production of Paul Mesner Puppets. Far from simplistic, childish and cloying, the ensemble’s “The Nativity” is known to stir the hearts and imaginations of jaded adults even as it delights children. Lavishly designed puppets and excellent direction make the reverent but highly entertaining show an annual holiday ritual for theater-goers of all ages”
