“ Vancouver-based musician/poet/actor Rodney DeCroo weaves his many talents together to share the moving tale of his life so far. Accompanied by the gorgeous cello stylings of Clara Shandler, this hybrid show is part music, part poetry and all entertaining. “ –  Winnipeg Freepress ★★★★1/2

 “A first-rate poet, and a poet’s gift for language runs through this show.” – CBC  Radio Winnipeg ★★★★
