That mix of silliness on the surface of darker emotional territory encapsulates the humour of the rest of the show, and of the skilled cast who created it...
— Carly Maga (Toronto Star)
Combining physical comedy with music and genre-bending themes, the cast kicks it at high speed, rolling out moment after moment of big-time LOLs. Fairy tale meets crime procedural meets romantic dramedy as music and hilarity ensue in the magical, imaginative The Adventures of Tom Shadow.
— Cate McKim (Life with More Cowbell)
I was not prepared to laugh that much.
— Taylor Long (Broadway World)
I have seen A LOT of theatre in my time, and Tom Shadow lifted my spirits greatly.
— Rebecca Felgate (Toronto Guardian)
I’ll also say that the cast is pretty damn flawless...The story doesn’t lag for a single moment, the music is charming and the cast is simply outrageous.
— Jennifer Enchin (Mooney on Theatre)
Fantasy and silliness and some very sly digs at contemporary society make for an action-packed entertainment that leaves you sidesplit but wanting more.
— Susan Walker
If you are looking for high energy, dynamic physical comedy that’s well constructed and mingles dark humour with the absurd, then don’t miss Tom Shadow. Bring a friend.
— Mary-Margaret Scrimger (My Entertainment World)
