"Couldn't have been bettered" Broadway World

It was an outrageous 75 minutes, under director Daniel Fish. The rest of the cast--Amelia Watkins as Brainy Woman, Eliza Brag as the Ape, Timur as the Doctor and Matt Boehler as the Director--couldn't have been bettered. And cheers to the production team for a stellar job: Amy Rubin and Jim Findlay (scenic designers), Joshua Higgins (video desginer), Terese Wadden (costume designer), Barbara Samuels (lighting designer), and Garth MacAleavey (sound designer).

"The flamboyant Timur" New York Classical Review

The opera/movie comes out of the plot of Captive Wild Woman, in which a mad doctor, played originally by John Carradine, transforms an ape into Acquanetta. Behind the character is the Doctor (the flamboyant tenor Timur, indulging seriously in the role), a nurse named Brainy Woman (soprano Amelia Watkins), the ape (Eliza Bagg, in and out of costume), and the movie’s Director (bass Matt Boehler, carrying a palpable weight of harried world-weariness).
