Absorbing, Strong vocals, Entertaining, Classical, Contemporary dancing

See it if Look, this is exceptional singing, this singing alone is worth everything. Also excellent staging and great dances cleverly using the stage.

Don't see it if you don't know the Notre Dame story well. The scenes change pretty abruptly and it can be hard to follow. If 160min is too long for you. Read more

The Observer

For a previous production

"With so much to unpack, scenes and tunes that vividly stay in mind, 'Notre Dame de Paris' merits to claim an urgent and long-lasting place in the New York art scene."

For a previous production

"Imagine a sung-through musical that's made up almost entirely of power ballads, from the electric guitar underlining its slow-burn opening to its final, soaring glory note. That's the best way to describe the experience of watching Notre Dame de Paris..."

For a previous production

"From start to finish, there's a lot for the eyes and ears to latch onto and sort through. 'Notre Dame de Paris' is definitely a one-of-a-kind event, an 'it is what it is' experience that, while it will not appeal to all, certainly provides a no-holds-barred evening of extravagant romance and pageantry."

New York Stage Review
July 15th, 2022
For a previous production

"For those of us who grew up on Charles Laughton’s indelible, middle-aged Quasimodo from the 1939 film, it’s a bit of a shock to learn—or rather relearn—that there is no final 'sanctuary' in the original text; nor do we get a happy ending in this by-the-book rendering."

For a previous production

"Notre Dame," on the other hand, is a series of very French pop songs that are the plot, storytelling not particularly effective due to their being sung in French, albeit with good translations flashed on several screens. There is very little non-sung dialogue. All the songs were brazenly amplified to rock concert level so that their ubiquitous crescendos and climaxes could be savored.

For a previous production

“Someone looking for cohesion within the musical will be let down. The action can be for want of propulsion despite the present plot progression...To forgive its faults does require grace because this musical accepts itself as an emotional experience.”
