Decent production of a challenging musical: the book (story) is complicated and does not lend itself well to simple staging, but this company did a great job in very tight quarters. The standout performance for me was the surprise of the 14-year...continued

I've seen a few productions in this space and although it's not the greatest of venues, it was far more accommodating to Violet than the last show I saw (Sweeney Todd, which was horrendous).

The actors worked really hard and were very good. I liked the live music as well. The Flicks character was an outstanding singer/actor, and frankly better than the show he was in.

You looked around the audience and most people were falling...continued

This musical was fabulous despite it being opening night and the traps of a small stage and a only two musicians. The cast was excellent in both voice and performance, superb costumes defining the characters, and propless technique making the...continued

Don't miss this opportunity! A must see!!! This gem has not been done in Los Angeles as a full staged production, and in the intimate setting of the smaller Monroe Forum at the El Portal this cast shines!!
