"Be warned, it’s not for the squeamish. Along with the beauty of voice and movement lurks all the danger of entry into a haunted house." (Theatreworld Internet Magazine)
"A unique blend of song and storytelling, Goblin Market is unusual and powerful, a perfect alternative (or companion) to graphic gorefests." (Chicagoist)
"The premise is only middling scary: A young woman betrayed by curiosity. What makes Christina Rossetti’s 1862 poem truly creepy is its lurid imagery, dark implications, and aura of sexual hysteria." (Chicago Reader)
"It’s the perfect choice for those who prefer seasonal Halloween fare of a more classical, high-minded flavor." (TimeOut Chicago)

We must not buy their fruits
Who knows upon what soil they fed
Their hungry thirsty roots?"
