What I liked

Choreography, music, and of course the incredible aerial work were all top-notch… a Cirque du Soleil show perfectly scaled for an intimate Fringe experience. Monica Miklas, Tamysen Malles, and all the rest of the high-flying players in the production have come to play, making all the vertiginous stuntwork look appallingly effortless. Tying everything in to the well-known tales of the title characters works very well, keeping the audience on familiar ground (even as the performers are fifty feet above it!).

What I didn't like

I wouldn’t have said no to another breathtaking sequence or two, but I don’t want to be greedy!

My overall impression

So much fun! Gorgeous and impressive and heartfelt.
