Clever, Delightful, Funny, Great singing, Must see

See it if you love Shakespeare and don't know Jazz or vice versa. You will see both in a brand new light.

Don't see it if you are just a sourpuss who doesn't like to have a great time.

Cabaret Scenes
July 26th, 2017

"The players in this New York debut were young, attractive, enthusiastic, charming, and in fine voice, if not always up to the challenge of enunciating the poetry and putting it across…To realize its potential, the show needs a seasoned stage director....The band, especially the drummer, almost always overwhelmed the voices and therefore blotted out the words—always a sin in sung music. But when the words are Shakespeare’s, it felt more like a crime.”
