Five Easy Steps (to the end of the world)

“if you only see one play this year, make it Zuppa Theatre’s Five Easy Steps (to the end of the world)”

“an original, haunting piece that will stick with you long after you’ve left the misty confines of its Brewery Market ‘stage.'”

“The music by Jason Michael MacIsaac and David Christensen is both catchy and soul-touching, and the dancing is brilliant, breathtaking, burn-your-candle-at-both-ends-’cause-the end-is-nigh fantastic.”

– Kate Watson, The Coast

“Zuppa Theatre delivers an unforgettable sensory experience”

“Part carnival, part house of horrors, part New Year’s Eve party and part true confessions…quirky and haunting original songs…glittering, high-octane performances…Five Easy Steps leaves you feeling like you’ve been to a wild party where everything went wrong and yet you wished it had never ended.”

– Elissa Barnard, The Chronicle Herald

“This performance melds…words, movement, gesture and infuses them with light, space and music to create an inspired piece of theatre. The inexpressible is given voice and visions long blurred come into focus in Five Easy Steps (to the end of the world).”
