"Living up to their reputation, the Los Angeles Cacophony Society created another stellar display of twisted torment. It's hard not to howl at their Toyland diorama, a colorful and hallucinatory performance where grade school destruction fantasies and "combustible playthings" including stuffed animals on rotisseries and fire-spewing jack-in-the-boxes were immolated and destroyed in a hilarious, middle-class nightmare by costumed Toyland helpers."
