"El Crocodor is wonderfully tacky (the focal point of the stage are lamps,) and it is HYSTERICAL! Full of music, by Sandra Head, puns, bad jokes, stabs at Canada, Dance (the underwater ballet is everything but graceful), and songs, lyrics by Peter Anderson, like Menage-a-trois, who knows YOU may even get an offer! The costumes are fantastic, imaginative, creative, delightful [...] this enamorating cabaret captivated the attention of the audience with song and music of the "illegal" 20's"
