"Kevin's show very gently SCREAMS joy, fun, creativity, imagination and wonder. Watching Kevin's performance is kind of like opening a birthday present when you were six. It starts with the eager excitement of wondering what it could possibly be. Then there is the total joy of ripping into it with all your senses, followed by the thrill of keeping a gift you've never imagined."
