Clever, Whimsical, Entertaining, Great singing, Creative staging

See it if it's fun to see an avant-garde musical showcasing big casts' talent in harmonizing voices w/ even unusual instruments & crazy choreography.

Don't see it if you want a plot to go w/ your show as this a concert of mixed lively & soothing music. But you can also consider each number as a mini plot. Read more

The Globe and Mail
May 10th, 2011
For a previous production

“The entirety of ‘(re)Birth’ is jubilant and joyous; and as a cleverly staged concert I have no qualms. Whether or not the music the collective has created actually serves the poetry of Cummings is another matter altogether. A few lines are communicated with great force, but generally what comes across is fuzzy conviviality...It makes you want to go home and pick up a book of poetry, which is fine, but not what you would call a complete artistic experience.”
