Review Quotations

A crème brûlée of a production...deliciously sweet... directed by Chuck Hudson amid a set reminiscent of a Viennese chocolate box (The Merry Widow) consistently leans upon the twin crowd pleasers of twist-filled comedy and star-crossed lovers...a light and lovely season opener.

Chuck Hudson's staging, augmented by Michael Matthew Ferrell's cute choreography, showed a light, clever touch...and kept the show moving at a sprightly pace all evening.
