Katerina Sochnev’s review
Beyond all my expectations! Great value for the price! Thank you to Casa0101 team and staff for the magical night for me and my girls (2 and 5). A friend and I brought 5 toddler girls (from 2 to 5 years old) to see Friday 8 pm performance. It’s first come, first served, but the casa0101 team insured the kids were sitting in the first row, which made girls truly feel special. All five were glued to the performance the entire time despite long running time (3 hours) and the late hour. Cast was super friendly, and we ended up taking lots of photos with them after the show, and Belle received countless hugs from our girls! I wish I could attach photos of all the cuteness to this review! My 2-year-old keeps talking about the show 3 days later. I took them to see Alladin at the Pantages before, and while it was a good experience, the intimate atmosphere and the close proximity to the performance of Casa0101 made it a truly special and memorable experience. I must note that contrary to some other reviews, we didn’t find the show “cheesy”. Adult audience seemed to enjoy it throughly, and I wished I had my husband come with us as well as I know he would have loved it. The theatre is small (only 6 rows), so every seat gets a great view. They were able to use the stage space creatively and come up with some cool special effects. Most importantly, acting and signing was superb (really a luxury of leaving in LA with some many talented actors) and cast was very diverse/multicultural, which just added to the depth of the characters. I’ll look forward to see other productions at CASA0101!
