"Sequins abound, as one might expect from any self-respecting Latin Cabaret. There are only so many situations in which it’s hard to have too much sparkle, and 'La Gloria' takes full advantage of being one of those situations, with costume and set design (also by Calero). A nightclub in the clouds is silver, blue, feathered, ruffles, white tuxedos and sparkle...This bilingual production is jubilant, and no less so for an English-speaking audience.”
