Critics Reviews

“It’s rather more a case of the primordial soup because the show promises to “trace man’s journey from the very beginnings of life on Earth to our ultimate desire to fly”
– Express

“It's gorgeous nonsense to look at, and in director Joel Schumacher's hands, "The global circus troupe’s insect-themed extravaganza is technically astonishing”
– The Guardian
