“It’s astonishing. It really does have it all! Visually it’s stunning, the costumes are beautiful, the orchestra is magnificent, the acting is great, and the dancing is brilliant. It’s a win win win win win situation.”
~Michael Bruno, Channel 3000
Gutierrez …, Joshua K. A. Johnson … and Nicolas Dromard …each shine in their roles … the incredibly versatile Christopher deProphetis also deserves top billing. …They acquit themselves handily as true triple threats -- each demonstrating strong singing voices with dramatically large ranges, a knack for broad, musical theater characterizations and stunning dance moves, from soaring heel clicks to balletic spins.
