I loved the VIP Red Velvet treatment from the theatre staff! This show was wonderfully staged in a very ingenious way using the entire theatre. Randy Roberts has an amazing voice and carried the entire production. An interesting storyline, but...continued

I saw the preview performance of Chance, and would highly recommend it to others. Great performances by the three major players, including a stellar performance by Randy Roberts as The Lady. The song lyrics are wonderful! I especially liked "The...continued

CHANCE is an unusual and brave new musical not to be missed. I saw this show last night and I was so moved by the story that tears were in my eyes during the finale. Reading the other reviews, I have to say that I think the other reviewers are...continued

Great premise. Music fantastic. Staging intriguing. Acting stellar. Starts slow, but has you totally engaged by the intermission. Unfortunately the wrap up is a bit scattered. So I had to downgrade to 4 stars instead of the five I had anticipated...continued

Talented and committed cast. The staging was unique in that the production took place in various locations around the room. Nice change. But the problem was -- 90% of the production took place in a location that required the front 5 rows of the...continued

Gregory is a middle aged gay man who has not had a relationship in years. One night, out of desperation he contacts a young hustler online. Because of each of their...continued

"The Lady" Randy was the highlight of the performance. I did not connect with the story (did not "see" how or why Chance and Greg would connect) or the two other performers and one group number was a misfire (could not understand the lyrics)...continued

This new musical boarders on greatness, but misses the mark. Aside from the rather strange staging that caused me to get some whiplash because the action happens simultaneously on both sides of the audience, the musical had a lot of good points....continued

Play was an interesting idea, fresh, and the performances were good. But, I thought the music was not as good as the storyline. Music was okay, but no really memorable songs that one would want to hear again or that would withstand the test of...continued

This was a very enjoyable show, it still needs a lot of work and I hope that the writer and team continue to evolve it. The story and theme have lots of potential that will be stronger and more clear after some refocusing. While Randy Roberts...continued

I've been working with this show for over a month and have seen it through its tentative rehearsal days, through its first performance week ... I saw it again last Friday night - and the transformation is just amazing - the sign of brilliant...continued

Wow!! Chance is a beautiful show with a lot of heart! The theater (The Alcove Theater) is a gorgeous theater in Union Square that seats about 50 people. It's very intimate and everyone has an amazing seat. The music was fantastic and the story...continued

Well performed show even if the characters were written as a bit too rigid to be realistic. Loved the music!
