Loved it! I was a little bit skeptical at first since the movie is one of my favorites, but 5 minutes into performance I was sucked into it and did not blink till the end. I hope that low attendance is due to a big thunderstorm that preceded the...continued

Overall, I liked it. Excellent acting on all parts, I thought, and the play really captured the intensity and passion that these men put into their music. In some parts, it did start to drag a little and I wish there had been more Mozart/Salieri...continued

Intimate venue in a nice, mostly quiet park. I appreciated being able to rent a lawn chair for $2.00 and even more so did I appreciate the basket of bug spray.Good production. Salieri actor was superb, especially in the first act. Truly ,edge of...continued

Once again this summer, Kevin Theis gives a performance that outshines that of other theaters' productions (namely, CST). Kevin makes difficult characters and language understandable to the average person (me) and, for that, I am grateful and I am...continued

Wish i could give it more than 5 stars. Such a great show. I'll admit it's a little slow at first, but like a good opera, it builds to an intensity and excitement that makes it worth it! (Can you tell I know nothing about opera?!) The costumes...continued

Fabulous actors in a perfect summer setting -- in Austin Gardens. Although the acoustical system was wanting, we totally enjoyed this very capable adaptation of Amadeus. The actors did themselves proud!

The play was well-done and in a pleasant outdoor location. Literally my only reason for not giving it four stars as a rating is that I've sen the movie version twice, the last time being maybe 4 - 5 months ago on cable. So, there were no...continued

Not too much music, lots of mosquitoes, bring a lawn chair, and park across the street for free.

Outdoor theater in the summer is wonderful. We enjoyed the performance. It would have been nicer without the fluorescent lights and noise from the neighboring businesses.

Very intimate and gorgeous setting in a park in a historic suburb. Loved the outdoor stage and excellent acting. The sound quality was great and hearing Mozart's music under the stars was divine. Loved the acting, although the play itself was...continued

Although I thought that I reviewed this last year, it was well worth reviewing again. Amadeus may have a large cast but they are no more than window dressing for what is a two man show, or in this case a one man show. Kevin Theis as Antonio...continued

Very good show and very-well produced. The actors were excellent and of course the story is very compelling. Really makes one think about how our beliefs become our realities. Sitting in a park, on a beautiful summer night, watching a good...continued

Fabulous. Great acting, perfect setting, and good visibility.
This was one fun outing!
Relaxed atmosphere. I'd suggest for the organizers to add one or two porta-potties.
Coffee for sale in the park would be wonderful too

Wonderful performance. We were not aware that the venue was outside so were not prepared for that.
