"A goofy, romantic, sometime joyously antic confection, dancing up a storm to "The Lonely Goatherd" from "The Sound of Music." If polka be the food of comedy, play on. - The New York Times

"Not only is there a sensitive director (Fred Berner) but a choreographer (Deanna Dys) who put the cast through their paces with empathy as well as joy. Perhaps it is not giving away too much to point out that dancing goes on in both the Howe and Zweibel one-acts, making the joint observation that often life, no matter how complicated it gets, serves up much to dance about. - The Huffington Post

"By turns touching and amusing, "Pine Cone Moment" may be the only work to use "The Lonely Goatherd" from "The Sound of Music" in a deeply romantic way. - The New York Post
