Cinnamon, The Public Reviews 2011
performance is astonishing.
performance is remarkable and extremely well done...a
strong lesson in story telling.
Boothman, The British Theatre Guide 2010
Michael Sabbaton cycles from commanding through unsettling
all the way to full-on disturbing.
Platt, The Edinburgh Guide 2010
(Sabbaton is a) formidable actor (who) take(s) on
the different persona and create(s) such a claustrophobic
and horror laden atmosphere. His characterisations and
capture of a moment were wonderful.

Sabbaton perfectly captures this descent into insanity.

Sabbaton presents the desparation, fear and insanity

Dibdin, The Stage 2010
(A) strong creation of intense character.
Stott, The Scotsman 2010
An arresting performance.
Three Weeks 2010
Movingly poetic and quietly terrifying.
Rutter, Fortean Times 2010
Definitely the best Lovecraft adaptation on the Fringe.

performances were astonishing, none more so than Michael
Sabbaton’s Geppetto (wearing what appeared to be
a yellow cotton floor mop). Sabbaton has a good singing

Turner, The Rotheram Advertiser
Sabbaton—at times looking like Frank out of TV’s
Shameless—is a charming Geppetto, while wearing
what appears to be a yellow cotton floor mop and with
a voice reminding anyone old enough of an actual Italian
puppet, Topo Gigio. Sabbaton is great with voices and
his transformations are as believable as they are remarkable,
switching to bearded ladies, sly cats and a bird with

Sabbaton also displays great versatility as the villainous
Duke Frederick, the laidback hippy Duke Senior, Corin,
Adam and (don't ask) a born again preacher.
