“Dazzling stars, protruding beams and projected imagery – The senses are definitely stimulated by interactive video projection that amplifies emotion and immerses the audience in the story.” – Dean Margerison, Sydney Arts Guide, Feb 17 2014
“Visually, The Man Who Dreamt The Stars is one of the most spectacular shows I’ve ever seen. The lights and the technical effects in this show are absolutely, gobsmacking exquisite.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a show that was so visually stunning.” – Jodi McAlister, Australian Stage, 18 Feb 2014
