“Local actors Stephen Sim and Caity Curtis successfully pull off old-school laughs as the vintage vaudeville comedy team of George Burns and Gracie Allen, and in doing so remind audiences what made them so beloved.”

-Winnipeg Free Press

 

“Just like people easily fell in love with Gracie Allen when they first heard her, you’ll fall in love with Caity. Sassy, sweet and impersonating Allen’s familiar birdlike voice, her illogical logic and zany antics will have you in stitches. While Stephen comes in with the adoring patience and exasperation every good straight man needs.”

-CBC

 

“The comedy of George and Gracie remains timeless thanks to Stephen and Caity.  Burns and Allen’s act has been lovingly updated and presented as a tribute to a bygone era. I’m certain that George and Gracie would have loved this tribute to them.”

-Al Simmons
