"The resulting physical comedy — punishing on this troupe and involving prodigious trust and coordination among its members — is both unlike and better than any I've seen on a Milwaukee stage this year."
MIKE FISCHER, MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL
"Brilliant physicality...a spectacle of gallows humor and pedigreed clowning."
SELENA MILEWSKI, SHEPHERD EXPRESS
"Director Brian Rott summons unparalleled imaginative energy...A period piece straddling medieval and renaissance France, Buboes stirs a deeply recessed portion of your consciousness." LOCAL TROLLEY
