Voices were tremendous! Read about Roland Hayes on Wikipedia before you go. Go to hear the voices if for no other reason.

Excellent, excellet, excellent!! An excellent rating for each of the three performers. The total program was 90 minutes of delight. The voices and piano accompaniment were off the chart.

Loved it!

Wow, all three of the actors were amazing. They not only had beautiful voices but they flowed together from scene to scene wonderfully. My wife said it was the best play she has seen in a long time!

Professional performance by all three actors, one of whom was also a talented pianist. The life of Roland Hayes is told in 90 unforgettable minutes. The Colony theatre has done themselves proud again!

Talented cast of singing actors in a compelling story that sometimes sags in how it is told and simply staged. Sit in Center or Right section for best view.

It took me a few minutes to get into it, but ended up really enjoying the play. The actors were all excellent. I had not ever heard of Roland Hayes so it was a learning experience too!

Enjoyable evening. The voices and music are very enjoyable; the non-musical portion is a bit thin. The story of his life was new to me and quite compelling.
