Intense, Great singing, Great acting, Enchanting, Absorbing

See it if you love shows where the characters are all telling their own stories to the audience, not quite to each other, and their voices have power.

Don't see it if you are triggered by sexual assault and violence. You don’t like it when the actors are also playing instruments. Read more

Quirky, Thought-provoking, Ambitious

See it if you enjoy Greek Myths reimagined.

Don't see it if you are triggered by stories of abuse. Or if you need more story to help support the music - or staging to support the concert concept.

Clever, Absorbing, Ambitious, Great singing, Heartbreaking

See it if Concert-styled musical featuring a sisterly relationship. It's a small theatre allowing for a more intimate experience.

Don't see it if you are not a fan of smaller shows/ want larger commercial works, loud rock music, and want a traditional theatre experience.

The Kilbane’s' lyrics can be a tad pedestrian at times, and they aren't too fussy about their rhymes, but the script has good bones, and the music deftly exploits various rock styles, embracing the narrative's extended emotional range with songs that are, alternately, tender, wicked, furious, and transcendent. As played by a crack musical ensemble, they keep us engaged in the sisters' wildly changing fortunes, their descent into tragedy, followed by an ultimate moment of transcendence.

"Weightless" is performed as if it were a concept album staged as a concert with the characters all played by the six member band who sit or stand on the stage placed on various platforms. Peiyi Wong’s set design does not allow for much stage movement and Tamilla Woodard’s direction does not give the actors much to do in the way of stage business. However, the storytelling is clear and the characters well defined.

"There are different levels in their performance of 'Weightless'...that gives it meaning and strength far beyond a musical performance. 'Weightless' is definitely worth your time and attention."

"Unless you're a fusty classicist unwilling to entertain a little revisionism, you're going to have a good time at 'Weightless,' a perfectly enjoyable spin on a perfectly dreadful tale."

"Theatrically, 'Weightless' remains frustratingly earthbound, but musically, the show soars."
