Reviewer Ed Farolan

What a show! This exciting equestrian extravaganza was a big wow for the opening night audience last January 31st! You could hear the ooohs and aaahs from young and old alike as acrobats, dancers, aerial artists together with magnificent horses and live music celebrated in magic and dreamlike fashion this fabulous spectacle. This is a show that "surpasses the world's greatest shows," according to Larry King. Full review

Reviewer Maria Figueiredo

Cuisine & Confessions was built on the real-life personal stories of each cast member. Shana Carroll and Sébastien Soldevila, in charge of the Creation and Staging of the performance began with extensive story-telling sessions and extracted facts, themes, and images which they wove throughout each act, all based on these real stories.
