“Super Eagle was a huge success. Great buzz, great reviews, sold out houses including the bonus show…It’s definitely among the very best things I’ve seen in Seattle that was actually made in Seattle. Loved the rigor, the technique, the strong aesthetic and the compelling performances.” — Jeffrey Frace
