for a previous production It’s Evita, Jim, but not as we know it… From smoke flares to spray cans to buckets of white and sky blue paint, Lloyd’s motifs are omnipresent and dominant in this production and some land better than others.' Full Review
“One of the main themes of 'Elf' is the importance of bringing the Christmas spirit back to a downtrodden, overworked and gloomy population of Americans that we call typical New Yorkers. Well, it does as exactly what it says on the tin, as they say...The upside - and this really knocked my bell-jingling socks off – is the enormous sound system that amplifies the live 16-piece orchestra...Hearing a Broadway score played out so richly at those increased volumes was quite spectacular.” Full Review
"A 90-minute brazen, unapologetic and big-budgeted love letter to its own city...The audience comes alive each and every time those famous Rockettes grace the stage. It is an undeniable rush witnessing them all in a single-file line performing simultaneous choreography...You should take a trip and see The Rockettes at least once in your life. Now might be the time." Full Review
"You don't need to know a lot to enjoy this entertaining and thought-provoking piece of theater. It's that this is a play about memory, art, revolution and OK, a little history...Hollander gives a tour de force performance as Carr...Marber deserves credit for the tight, brisk and specific production...Truly, there are so many levels on which you can enjoy this work. I recommend that you strap yourself in and go for the ride. You won’t regret it." Full Review
"There is no shortage of impressive vocal stylings…There seemed to be a few distracting technical issues with the sound..There also doesn't seem to be an abundance of chemistry between the three headliners...I'm sure these can all be ironed out as the production gains momentum towards Christmas...Glover gives the most powerful and show-stealing vocals of the night...If you are a fan of Glover or just simply can't get enough of the Christmas spirit, then this is the one for you."
