REVIEWS 

"Critic’s Choice! A brightly colored, lighthearted take on the legend, which audiences may find just right for a summer evening." - San Diego Union-Tribune

"Whether you relish swashbuckling adventure, amorous exploits, or good triumphing over evil, you'll find what you're looking for here. The humor consistently hits the mark.” - KSDS Jazz 88 

"Ken is America’s preeminent comic playwright. Our field has no one else like him. With Sherwood, he has fashioned an extraordinary new take on the legend. The play is a romp full of swashbuckling and romance, and it’s also a moving tale of a young man’s discovery that everyone has a responsibility to care for his fellow man." - Barry Edelstein, Artistic Director, The Old Globe
