The performers were all delightful, especially Jason Graae! And the stories told my Mr Zippel and the interviewer were a nice added touch. A very different experience from last season's Stephen Schwartz show. Left me wanting more!

Very professional for a local and imported from Broadway cast.

Enjoyed the show a lot. The tribute did a good job of setting Coleman's work into context even for those unfamiliar with it (like my date); made good use of film/video clips, and had terrific performances of the songs.
