Excellent performances were given by all. You could hear every word spoken and sung. Stage was well used, the costumes were way beyond

Beautifully realized with a wonderful mix of drama and comedy. The cast is a little uneven, with the Smyths both stealing the stage whenever they appear, especially Deborah's Mrs. Pendarves. The actress playing Susannah Cibber is a little weak;...continued

Interesting story and some good acting but we could not see the actors' faces well, even though we had good seats and it's a small theatre. The actors often had their backs to us (e.g. Kitty's Desdemona death scene), or they were standing too far...continued

This play was awesome. Very well acted out. Ms. Byrne really shined with her singing.

This was a great performance; everyone involved did a great job! The play had everything: tragedy, comedy, music, drama, and a happy ending to boot. My wife and I had a ton of fun; if you love Handel's "Messiah," you will love "Joyful...continued
