What critics are saying about Scraps
"The essence of Scraps is her optimism; the essence of Scraps is its unveiling of the complexity of relationships and identities that are central to America's favorite Kansas alternative. The ensemble gleefully acquiesces to all the shapeshifting required with multiple roles and moveable set pieces. Charlie Irving brings vulnerability and complexity to her supporting role as our old pal Dorothy. "
"People who would like this show are people who like charismatic rag dolls, an effective moral, and unlabeled Oz. I think people should go see this show. It is an interesting and fun experience. I liked it! "
Ada Grey Reviews
"In the title role, Brown is entirely endearing. Despite spending the majority of the play with her face hidden behind a mask, her ebullience and energy shine through, making Scraps (whom some of the others consider a bit of a joke) a fully developed person in her own right, despite what she might believe. In someone else’s hands, the role might have become caricature, but Brown is careful to take Baum’s unusual creation as seriously Scraps takes herself."
