"Nimble and electric with energy, Merovitz plays a dizzying array of characters....Merovitz also sings wonderfully....Don't miss this show."

Allan Merovitz is lovable and enchanting. Heís a wonderful storyteller.... And with him on stage are three Klezmer musicians who play everything from Klezmer to Pontiac County step dancing and Ottawa Valley country music, and it works. Itís wonderful....Go see this. Itís a fine evening. I laughed, I cried. I had a wonderful time.

". . . a lovely heartwarming evening for the whole family" Avril Benoit, CBC

"... Itís all done with great energy and authority; both in speech and song Merovitz seems to have every Canadian and U.S. idiom down pat." Robert Cushman, National Post

"Merovitz is a good storyteller and a beautiful singer, and If Cows Could Fly is laden with songs ranging from fiddle and country ballads to klezmer and jazz standards." Joanne Huffa, Eye Magazine

"Tracing his ancestry back to its eastern European roots, storyteller/musician Allan Merovitz uses his family to play out several strands of the 20th century Jewish experience in Europe and Canada...with tales of shtetles, immigration to Canada and moving Yiddish melodies." Jon Kaplan, Now Magazine
