We opened!

Two beautiful sold out nights (Thursday and Friday). We're thrilled by the audience response.

The first review is also out. It's by Venus Zarris, a critic I admire tremendously!

Thanks to all of you who came to see us!!!



"Master Set Designer Brian Sidney Bembridge creates a sensationally stylized tone and Costume Designer Tonette Navarro compliments the colors and sleek sensibilities to perfection. This show looks as good as next year’s iPhone upgrade.

The cast delivers the craziness with a calculated combination of choreographed restraint and reckless abandon. Mariana Leite opens the play with a hysterically absurd lip-synch that sets the stage for unpredictable irreverence. Geraldine Dulex is a perfectly flirtatious minx as Amelia and Antonio Brunetti is an idiosyncratic delight as the co-dependant Dagobert.

Jodi Kingsley steals the show as Chantal, with a performance that sneaks up on you like overage charges at the end of the month. Her comic timing is smarter than the smartest smartphone and her delivery is nothing short of cheeky brilliance. She completely inhabits the satire and delivers it with a custom ring tone of hilarity."
