"It's just another vision from the gleefully twisted world of Ken Roht, 
a choreographer-director-writer-performer and all-around theatrical auteur who matter-of-factly calls 
his work 'avant-garde song and dance--you know, whimsical, surrealist music theater,'
as if we all know what he's talking about."
LA Times, Feature Article

To call the prolific director/writer/choreographer/performer Ken Roht 
a theatrical savant implies he knows not what he does—
that he's an idiot savant to boot. He might be the first to agree. 
LA Stage Magazine, Feature Article

Roht's vision is part dream - part nightmare - a sliver of fantasy and some social commentary 
wrapped with a huge blanket of imagination and creativity. By the end of the 55 minutes, 
you feel that you fell through Alice's rabbit hole, 
and the images you saw are you, looking back at yourself.
