4 STAR review in TimeOut Kids (read full review)
“The first thing you need to know about the new Lifeline Theatre kids’ production, The Mystery of the Pirate Ghost, is that it’s legit scary…a quick scan of the audience revealed a lot of the younger audience members had crept over to the safety of parental laps. This is all for the good, as Pirate Ghost was the best kids’ show I’ve seen at the theater.” ~ Jonathan Messinger
