From previous performances by Phantom Projects, you will not be disappointed. As an admitted bibliophile, one cannot help but be critical as to when a book comes to life--- worrying about what is left out and executed can be crucial and change a film or performance all together (enter Michael Ondaatje's The English Patient-- book vs. film, frowning look here). Phantom Projects will not disappoint. The beauty of their mission-- to deliver strong, meaningful messages via stage aimed at pre-teen/teen audiences to adult-- is a testament of the love of art for Cisneros and company.
