I did not know what to expect from a show that is 250+ years old, but the cast, the direction and the staging of "The Rivals" made it very contemporary and hilarious. Sort of reminded me of "The Importance of Being Earnest", with catchy musical...More

Under the consistently fine direction of Keith Baker, this comedic musical kept us "Prisoner's of Love" last evening, captivated by the fabulous acting, singing & dancing. Lead actors Danny Rutigliano (as Max Bialystock)...More
