“Despite the title, “’Twas the Night Before” is not a literal or sentimental show for little kids, but a sophisticated entertainment that should also work well for ‘tweens and even cynical teens, mostly due to a cool design pallet and a very interesting soundtrack mashing up traditional Christmas music in a highly contemporary fashion.” – Chicago Tribune.
“It is a classic yet tweened-up Christmas special that will appeal to every age. Children will be drawn to the lights, the color, the Christmas theme, and especially to the curiously au currant elf-like dancers cranking out TikTokish dance memes. The adults will be charmed by the classic Christmas carols and breathtaking circus.” – Third Coast Review.
