for a previous production "Shockingly charming, profound and uplifting. And totally original!...This cyclone ride is entertaining on multiple levels. The look is authentic…Not only are the songs wonderful, the singing is top-notch under the musical direction of Doug Peck. And director and choreographer Rachel Rockwell keeps the dancing and merriment playfully moving with seamless transitions. There are no speed bumps on this thrill ride!...I absolutely loved 'Ride the Cyclone." Full Review
for a previous production "'Smokefall' is a unique theatrical experience. Haidle’s story is a total original. It’s part sitcom, part drama, part fable and all memorable. The sublime cast become Haidle’s cast of characters. And Kauffman navigates their inventive lives in dark comedy perfection." Full Review
for a previous production "Although Blum delivers spritely spirit in song and dance, he can’t quite match Ferrell’s dazzling performance...The visual is candy coated cute. This show has strong principals...'Elf the Musical' is a fun way to get in the holiday mood. The elfin magic still charms even sans Ferrell." Full Review
for a previous production "An inspirational powerhouse. (Bring tissues, it’s a tearjerker.) It’s reprised during the curtain call and the standing ovation is only paused so the audience can sing along. 'Amazing Grace' is a family classic in the making. The musical is on its way to becoming as beloved as the song itself." Full Review
"It’s the audio AND the visual. It’s hearing AND seeing the stomp. In one number, the ensemble lines up with Zippo lighters for the click AND the flame. Fascinating! The fast paced sequence of innovation makes STOMP perfect for kids and adults. It is the most fun you’ll ever have with a broom!" Full Review
