"The play, which invites audience participation in performing the catchy 'Whale in the Hudson' jingle with voice and hand-gesture, is at times whimsical, at times absurdist, and even a bit heartbreaking.  It's a potent mix of emotions for a younger audience who will no doubt enjoy watching a play in which kids are more important than adults." ​

"Written by Brad McKnight Wilson and directed by Maeli Goren, The Whale in the Hudson is the first Cab show in a decade designed for young audiences, with a special matinee, audience interaction, and eye-catching, raucous musical numbers built in especially for kids."​
