“Watching Modern Times Theater founders Rose and Justin perform is inspiring on many fronts. They are confident and consummate professionals who know their art well. They are wonderfully creative—using their multiple skills to craft original content in their own inimitable style. They are hysterically historic—utilizing the traditional arts of puppetry, theater, vaudeville, mime, music, and storytelling with wry humor.”  (Rob Mermin, founder Circus Smirkus)

“Modern Times Theater a vaudevillian enterprise, part funny-serious puppets, part jaunty live 1920s band, part serious social critique, part shenanigans.” (2/14/13, WBUR Boston, Greg Cook)

“THANK YOU for these shows, you create wonderful, soul feeding, hilarious work.” (audience member)

“Thank you so much for your wonderful, hilarious Punch and Judy puppet show and an especially warm, open reception following. My grandchildren, their parents and I were delighted with the performance. There was humor for the whole family.” (audience member)
