songs for a new world_reviews

Feedback for Songs has been overwhelmingly positive, with our first two nights selling out and few tickets remaining for the final two performances.

TheatrePeople has written a glowing review here, giving the show 4 out of 5 stars. With such a limited run, word of mouth travelling fast and closing night upon us all too soon, get your tickets as soon as possible so you don’t miss out!

Director Penn Valk and musical director Rapheal Wong prove themselves a match for Jason Robert Brown’s mini epic. Valk truly digs deep into the heart of the piece with her crisp, compassionate and stylish direction, and my hat goes off to Wong for his incredible achievement in making his cast equal to the phenomenal vocal demands of the score. Also, how nice it is for every singer to articulate so clearly that none of the moving lyrics are missed.

…Valk has wisely decided to keep the stage mostly bare, using only minimal but effective props and costume. The differentiation between the times rely heavily on the lighting and the ever reliable Damien Calvert acquits himself nicely in establishing the mood.
