As always with Cygnet the talent carries the show. Though I feel that the play itself held back at the end (the true details are much more disturbing than the musical's version), the actors/singers were all amazing. The emotion in the singing...continued

The music was not memorable but the play was well done; the acting was excellent, especially by the two stars of the play. However, the venue left A LOT to be desired!!! It was about 62 degrees in there. Everyone was cold At intermission I went...continued

A very thought provoking production executed beautifully with a talented cast. I was not familiar with the story, yet I found myself totally wrapped up in it by the end of the play. Unlike some people, I found the lyrics to be fundamental to the...continued

Excellent production! We were mesmerized. Brandon, who plays Leo Frank, is incredible.

No redeeming features to this bomb. The play was terribly disappointing. Performances were amateurish, the singing dreadful.

The theatre has a parking lot just for the
show-goers. Otherwise, OLD TOWN is a big place
and I found that getting directions first
was very helpful. If you wait to figure it out,
once you get there, you might find that
they do have these...continued

I loved the story, although it was depressing, but it didn't need to be a musical, and would have been a lot better if it had not been a musical! The performers were very energetic, but were not able to harmonize well and stay on key. We were...continued

Difficult subject to make into a musical. Was more like an opera. Had some apprehension going in (considering the subject) but was complerely won over. Performers acted and sang wonderfully. Costumes, sets, lighting and sound were just right. It...continued

This type of musical drama, with every song designed to further the action, rather than entertain, is not my favorite type of musical. But the performances and production values were so excellent that I found myself "enjoying" the musical. The...continued

Well done. Lead actor was brilliant!!! Definitely worth an evening in Old Town despite the fact that parking is a nightmare.

Truly outstanding. We heard every word sung or spoken... no worries. Perhaps they have taken earlier reviews to account in this regard. All of the actors were spot on -- staging was great as well. Such a great play!
GO!!! (It was a bit...continued

The first act was too long and too loud. It is a small venue and does not need all of the amplification. It would do better in a larger theater. The second act had more continuity, some really nice music, and it did come together. Overall, it...continued
