"The Life of Pi is an amazing show about a boy who is lost at sea with a Bengal tiger. The cast is very talented in acting and gave it their all. It is a spectacular experience. If you get an opportunity to see Life of Pi, go and watch it for sure."

"A definite five out of five! Loved the puppetry."

Stewart - ★★★★★

"An astonishing, unforgettable piece of theatre. The craftsmanship in the puppets is outstanding and is brought to life in a stunning way by the puppeteers. The show maintains that spiritual dreamlike quality of the book and makes for an ethereal, epix piece of theatre. Wonderful."
