Jina and the STEM Sisters enchanted us with ingeniously presented puppetry…there is never a dull moment….. This is an intelligent and entrancing entertainment… A gift that is very evident here is that of creativity; the show looks simply gorgeous throughout… Most definitely worth seeing… entertainment that encourages you to reserve your right to think.
