REVIEWS for Music of the Goddess

“Cook’s story is fascinating and well worth stretching into a full-length play. It’s a humorous, compelling and intoxicating blend of history and fantasy, incorporating mythological figures and historic individuals into its intriguing tale.” – Mark Bretz, Ladue News

“The script hides profound truths behind the silliness and superficiality of human conventions. This visually stunning production combines fun and philosophy to produce a thoroughly entertaining social critique… Yet another fine work from St. Louis playwright Shualee Cook … I found myself struggling not to laugh so that I wouldn’t miss the next zinger.” – Robert Nickles, KDHX

” An Invitation Out is unlike anything mounted on a local stage thus far in 2015 …  a wonderfully complex and fascinating journey into a troubled, vacuous future as conjured by playwright Shualee Cook.” – Mark Bretz, Ladue News

“(An Invitation Out) is big in every way: the size of its cast, the characters’ outlandish costumes, the generous imagination that playwright Shualee Cook poured into her vision of a neo-Victorian future … a clever, subtly disturbing vision” – Judy Newmark, Saint Louis Post-Dispatch

“Playwright Cook has created a fascinating and fully realized world here, populated by colorful characters who are often more than they first seem. There’s a surprising amount of depth … visually striking and at times funny, witty, challenging and even frightening.” – Michelle Kenyon, Snoop’s Theatre Thoughts

“Cook says her play is “a look at the future inspired by the past that would hopefully shed some light on the present.” “An Invitation Out”, though it runs a bit on the long side, hits this mark to a huge degree.” – Andrea Torrance, St. Louis Theatre Snob
