Review from Michael Yampolsky

One of the worst productions I have ever seen at the Chance. Poor acting, bad accents, terrible singing, and a awful script. Wanted to leave at intermission.

Well done. Great music including instruments and voices! Small, intimate atmosphere adds to the strong performances.

This is an intimate theater. All seats are good. It is important to now the story so you don't have to explain it to your guests during the play. Brilliant adaptation of this wonderful story. Wonderful voices especially Lilly and Devin. Amazingly...continued

Review from sanpaoli

Voices were not bad. Two young actors amazing. However, everything else was nothing but dark, gloomy, sad, distressing, shadowy, funereal. I made an awful decision to attend this performance during this joyous season of peace and happiness. It...continued

Actors were fabulous, very intense show. You need to know the story ahead of time, it is more of a dramatic musical than a happy love story. Beautifully done. Mary was fantastic, as well as the Lilly and Archibald.

Beautifully portrait version of The Secret Garden. Brought the book to life. Music was beautiful. Mary was Charming. Lilly was captivating. The brother and sister (Martha) were captivating and lovable.

Very enjoyable evening. Was a much more sad of a story than i had gathered, but it was done very well. The lighting, live piano, actors expressions, and costuming all came together to create a powerful show.

My little sister and I absolutely loved the Chance Theater's performance of The Secret Garden. We have both read the book and the musical holds a very special meaning for the both of us. The performance although in a much smaller setting than is...continued

Review from Patty Uchytil

The Chance Theater always does a great job. This show is not kid appropriate though, and the novel is. This interpretation focused on the adults and not the children, which really isn't the thrust of the book at all. I brought my daughter who said...continued

Review from judith farkas

The theater was too cold where we sat. It would be nice if management would check these kinds of things out before a performance.. Also the sound was too loud for such a small theater and we were all the way in the back. It would have been much...continued
