Very good show. The three leads were all exceptional. As was the orchestra. Unfortunately, the music is tuneless, but I liked the book and lyrics. Nice costumes as well.

It's a cliche' to say that a single performance was "worth the price of admission," but in this case it is also quite true: Heather Orth's soul-baring, heart-wrenching performance as Fosca is quite literally worth every penny that you'll pay - and...continued

The score of “Passion” is beautiful, dark, complex, and quite challenging. In this production, both the singers and instrumentalists did an admirable job. The acting was not nearly as strong, which may have been partly due to several actors...continued

The production itself was good minus a few little hiccups which is to be...continued

Far beyond my expectations! The leading actors (especially Fosca) are incredibly convincing and infective with top-notch singing voices. With the intimate stage and seating, Sondheim's powerful music and story was more than enough to capture the...continued

A talented cast, but a dreary book. Sondheim’s music and lyrics make no particular impression.

I thought the acting was wooden, though the singing was lovely. The leading guy had this pursed lip look throughout which was only seldom appropriate. The homely leading lady was rather amazing playing a homely lady...that was rather a tour de...continued

The singing and acting was great. Also the staging was wonderful.
It is a difficult musical - have seen both the original Broadway production as well as the Italian film. This is one of Sondheim's heavier shows.
There were some badly behaved...continued

This is not often performed and well worth seeing and hearing. The main role of Fosca is done incredibly well - both acting and singing. The music is well worth the visit to this intimate theater.
