"... perfect for small children, with audience participation, a perfect hour run-time and catchy musical numbers" ~ L.A. Theatre Review
"Critics' Pick" ~ New York Magazine
"At an hour long, Super Sidekick is a quick moving, no frills adventure kids are sure to enjoy. And for the big people that brought them, there are well-rounded performances, a couple of solid gags, and expertly crafted lyrics to keep their interest peaked, too ... Gregory Crafts' book is funny and clear, providing a good foundation for Michael Gordon Shapiro's brilliant lyrics, which get more impressive the closer one listens" ~ NYTheatre
