"TUTA’s quirky, shrewdly playful world premiere musical frolic that runs for just two more weekends very much a human story — a sly, engaging look at biology, psychology, the hunter and the hunted, the eater and the eaten, and, of course, that inevitable endgame, mortality.”

- Chicago Sun-Times (Full Review)


"It's an excellent example of Chicago-generated new work in terms of creativity and ensemble performance, and it carries a life-affirming message even in the face of grim reality." 

-Chicago Critic (Full Review)


"There's something to be said about a show that isn't like anything you've ever seen before, and that's something the animals of Anyway Cabaret can offer."

- Gaper's Block (Full Review)
