… but BEEP BEEP, people! The reviews for Treasure Island have been rolling in, and it looks like we’re a hit! I’ve linked below to several of the reviews, and included a few choice excerpts here and there.
Chicago Sun-Times – Dig up ‘Treasure’ at Lifeline show – “The ensemble is terrific, with Chris Hainsworth, Christopher M. Walsh, Ezekiel Sulkes, C. Sean Piereman and Eduardo Garcia as a fine bunch of battered and battering gold-diggers.”
Chicago Theater Blog – Lifeline creates an all-hands-on-deck winner – “Chief among equals: Christopher Walsh as the rum-and-rickets-infused Billy Bones, a rogue whose “thundering apoplexy” proves the catalyst for the story’s rollicking treasure hunt.”
Chicago Tribune – Full-blown ‘Treasure Island’ sails into Lifeline: Prepare to be boarded – “Thanks to the inventions of designer Alan Donahue and a slew of deliciously droll performances from the likes of Robert McLean, Christopher M. Walsh and young Warren Weber, this is an engrossing adventure that Kauzlaric unfolds at break-neck pace.”
Chicagoist – Shiver Me Timbers! Lifeline’s Treasure Island Is Explosive – “This show is as close to perfection as they come, and if you have a thing for pirates, it’s just that much better.”
Dining Chicago – Fabulous coming-of-age classics: ‘The Fantasticks’ and ‘Treasure Island’ – “Along with Sinitski, Christopher M. Walsh, as Billy Bones, and Patrick Blashill, as Dr. Livesey, deliver exceptional performances, and director Robert Kauzlaric’s staging is impeccable.”

Newcity – Review: Treasure Island/Lifeline Theatre
I am tired and bruised, but immensely proud of this show. Yar.
