If you love the books, love the circus or love seeing CTC work its magic, Madeline and the Gypsies hits the right marks. – St. Paul Pioneer Press

Eye-popping , world-premiere musical adaptation. …The integration of circus onto the CTC stage is a little stroke of magic, making it very clear why the spunky Madeline and her friend Pepito would feel the tug of the canvas and greasepaint. …If you love the books, love the circus or love seeing CTC work its magic, Madeline and the Gypsies hits the right marks. – St Paul Pioneer Press

Captures all the magic of Ludwig Bemelmans’ beloved 1959 book and fleshes out the characters and dramatic arc in a charming and convincing way. My daughter…was entranced by the sets, the costumes, the singing, the dancing, the slapstick comedy – basically all of it. – Minnesota Parent Magazine

Children's Theatre Company goes for the magic…with Madeline and the Gypsies – full of surprises, nice moments about the search for family and home, and real circus thrills throughout. …The play’s message – that both the world of order and creative chaos have much to offer each other – is played out gently and never gets in the way of the fun. There’s plenty of the latter, and the balance is delightful to watch. …A joyful escape for audiences of any age. – Talkin’ Broadway
