The entertainment for folks liking good music and dance by talented group led by excellent arrangements proven to please the audience. This group deals sensitively with racial issues dealing particularly with backgrounds of famous black musicians. Good work and very enjoyable!

I am so sold on the talent of this all black theatre troupe that I bought season tickets after seeing my first show. They are amazing and consider yourself fortunate if you get to see them perform in such an intimate venue. The voices...the dancing...the instrumentals...will have you singing along and wanting to get up and dance.

I've seen six performances, five of which were musicals. There is not a bad seat in the house and the up-close, live performances will rattle the core of your soul and charm you right out of your seat. I love, love, love the performaces of this ultra-talented troupe. Can't wait for next season!!!

Just saw the last performance of the season, Sammy Davis Jr. What a show! From the star of the show to all the musicians and backup singers, a job well done. We plan on attending some other performances in the new season.

We drove from South Beach to see Dezhon Fields perform as Sammy Davis Jr. in "Sammy" Tonight. It was well worth the drive!!! Dezhon has obviously studied Mr. Davis thoroughly. Not only was he the spitting image of Sammy, he sounded and danced like him as well. The backup singers were fabulous, as well as the band. My face hurt from smiling so much! The cast and crew were extremely personable, too. If you haven't seen this yet...DO IT!
