REVIEWS:

Michael Spudic of ASCAP

“It is my pleasure to support Christopher Kaufman and his innovative production, THE PHANTASTIC THEATER, an extraordinarily entertaining concept that successfully brings together fine arts education with live performance… his collaboration with world renowned flutist/composer Robert Dick was fabulous… the expressions on the faces of the young people in attendance and their rapt attention spoke volumes… Leaving the theater, I had the opportunity to speak with a young dad who related how much he and his daughter enjoyed the presentation and how important it was that Kaufman so creatively encouraged people to use their imaginations…”

 Steven Sandberg of Dora the Explorer fame

I love this project! Christopher writes music that is sophisticated, striking, original, serious yet accessible to children. Plus a great story and great art. A wonderful project. — Steve Sandberg, composer, “Dora the Explorer.”
 “Tales Of The Ocean City by Christopher Kaufman, is a multimedia eBook that fuses narration, music, and visual art to create a rare kind of experience — a brilliant form of entertainment that masterfully blends these beautiful episodic stories with award-winning music and dazzling art. Fantasy readers who also love epic music, you’re in for a treat once you consume the wonderful world of Kaufman’s creative work”… F.J.Bayrog – Fantascize Mag.
