The New York Times
'ONE OF THE MOST UNIQUE SHOWS NEW YORK HAS EVER SEEN!'
'OUTSTANDING MUSICAL PERFORMERS!'
Manhattan with a Twist
'DYNAMIC AND COMPELLING - CUE THE MAYHEM!'
'FANTASTICAL, WITH VISUAL EFFECTS TO MATCH!'
New York Theatre Review
In Mayhem and Majesty
, the sonic hooligans of Squonk pose the question...what does music look like?
The show's name derives from Squonk's Scottish reviews, 'Masterly Mayhem' and 'Insane Majesty,' and is 'a tsunami of sound and light...a hypnotic celebration of musical sound and what that sound does to the soul.'
This project is partially supported by a grant from Pennsylvania Performing Arts on Tour, a program developed and funded by The Heinz Endowments; the William Penn Foundation; the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency; and The Pew Charitable Trusts; and administered by Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation.
