SUSAN HUCKLE uncertified reviewer June 23, 2014
This was EXCELLENT. Every ounce of comedy was squeezed out of this delightful classic, and it was truly my pleasure to watch it. Great cast, love the men playing Gwen and Cecily, so well directed. A STAND OUT of the festival.... full review

What a great show! The beauty of theater sometimes is that the audience is let in on the fact that the cast is having FUN. These guys, and girls, are clearly enjoying playing together. ... full review

This is an utterly delightful production of a timeless comedy classic. Casting men in the roles of Gwendolen and Cecily is an inspired idea. Very strong direction and cast. The actors all have impeccable comic timing. Go!... full review

This is an enchanting and delightful production that I am sure Oscar Wilde himself would've enjoyed the hell out of. A sassy and smartly designed show with an engaging joy from the performers involved make this trimmed classic a fun romp at the theatre.... full review
KERI BLUNT certified reviewer June 09, 2014
Where do I begin? Well how bout at the beginning where I was hooked on this show whilst seated in the audience before it even began! Classical interpretations of gaga and britney to set the mood! Hilarious! And it just went up from there!! The actors are all it only beautiful, but with talent to match, and the director has truly put together a masterful version of this play with the "queer classics" twist! So much fun!! Don't miss it!... full review

This show is fun! I enjoyed the truncated version of the script and the actors were all solid – each with standout moments. I also enjoyed the costumes and sound design. If you’re looking for a simple show that has sassy, gay, entertainment – check this out.... full review
