Performance Reviews

“Thank you for a fantastic performance! I will be calling you to schedule next year’s show soon!”

Berna Demirbulaki

Preschool Teacher, Lincoln School, Rutherford, NJ

“Gerald and Pushcart Players were a pleasure to work with. We had two different school-wide Zoom presentations of Tales from Around the World. Gerald adapted the stories for the ages of our audiences and kept students from Pre-K through 5th grade engaged and entertained! We all learned so much from his stories and worldly experiences!”

Mr. Fierst is an awesome storyteller. One of our older teens who attended the program told me that she really enjoyed it, and she is someone who’s not afraid to say when she doesn’t like something!

I really enjoyed the program, too. Thanks for all of the work that you and your colleagues have done to promote live theatre during a time when it’s almost impossible to do so. What you’re doing is important and really lifts people’s spirits!
