Read what critics say about the play!!

"The Talking Band’s newest music-theatre work, Delicious Rivers, may just be the most charming play happening in NYC right now."
- Ross Peabody, NYTheatre.com

"Long one of the city's most able experimental theatre companies, the Talking Band is still smashing cliche, creating new forms, and reveling in surprise."
- Michael Lazan, Backstage

"A Dip in Delicious Rivers Proves to Be Merry and Thought-Provoking"
- Andy Propst, American Theater Web

"Math exemplifies the mysteries of Delicious Rivers, rather than solving them and it makes for a funny, touching evening."
- Julia Furay, CurtainUp

DELICIOUS RIVERS, written and composed by Ellen Maddow was created by the same OBIE award winning team that brought you PAINTED SNAKE IN A PAINTED CHAIR: direction - Paul Zimet, Set design - Nic Ularu, Lighting - Carol Mullins, costumes - Kiki Smith, choreography - Karinne Keithley. In addition there will be animations by Anna Kiraly. The show was developed in collaboration with the mathematician Marjorie Senechal . Set in a New York city post office, this funny and moving music-theatre work explores the pleasure of deductive reasoning; the solution of a mystery; the link between order and the unexpected; and the delight in discovery of pattern and meaning.
