    The world of Little Nemo lends itself to the stage as can be seen over the course of the past 100 years. Hansen does a wonderful job translating the comic into a script, capturing the marvel and wonder of the McCay characters and fantasy.

    Captures the fantastically idiosyncratic essence of W. McCay. If your teams are looking for a distinct stylistic and narrative challenge (and they should be, yes?), this is a wonderfully-crafted world to build both from and towards.

    It's rare to find a play that would work so well for young audiences. Not only would they marvel at the incredible spectacle that this show requires (which would be the dream of any ambitious designer!), but they would be encouraged by the strong and beautiful message--that anyone of any age and any size can be of great importance. Sweet, sincere and never pandering, Hansen has crafted a quality show that would be the jewel of any children's theatre.
