Stage Buddy

"A remarkably silly new work...And while some of the silliness leaves something to be desired, a lot of it is at the beating heart of 'Whiskey Pants', ultimately a very hardworking production...The work is fun, and while there are just a handful of jokes, the experience is a jovial one with a shot or two of the dramatic. Though a greater foundation would've done wonders for the piece, there’s still a ride of a time in Williamsburg 'Whiskey Town.'"

"A vibrant, sweet celebration and a bitter truth, all in one shot...At first I couldn’t become at ease with the phantasmagoric setting and the odd plot...Then it hit me, 'Whiskey Pants' is a fairy tale and should be viewed as such. The engulfing, fast-moving music and spectacular visual designs might make you think for a second that it is all sheer entertainment. Then you realize that you are witnessing a coming of age story of a talented girl in an alcoholic family."

"Christian De Gre has composed an intense score that creates a distinctive and compelling environment. Book by Serrana Gay and lyrics by Joseph Reese Anderson weave a simple and intoxicating story line. The cast is a powerful ensemble with fervent singing voices...The pacing and staging keep the action flowing as the character progress on their journey toward a different perspective of their reality."

One that shows that ten years after its conception, they are here to stay. Do not miss it!"

"It’s a visually stimulating theatre experience that has so many beautiful elements that your eyes and ears won’t know what to do next...To me, the score, the songs, and the vocals are what makes this wonderful production magical. All else is gravy. The orchestration is clever, crisp, fresh, different and stimulating...The cast is focused, and they gel like a well oiled machine, delivering emotional performances through out. The direction is phenomenal."
